Staff at Pine Rivers Community Health Centre celebrated 20 years of service to people in the Moreton Bay region on 29 May.

The community health centre was the first multi-functioning health service in Metro North Hospital and Health Service (MNHHS) and brought together a number of services into one facility.

Pine Rivers Community Health Centre Manager David Webber said a number of teams had joined the centre over the years to meet community needs and population growth.

“The centre now employs more than 100 staff members, including medical, nursing, allied health and administrative staff who are all dedicated to maximising the health and wellbeing of local clients,” he said.

“We’ve recently added the Indigenous health unit to the centre and I’m really looking forward to engaging with this sector in the community and supporting them to achieve better health and prevent future illness.”

Acting Executive Director Community Indigenous Subacute Services Mary Slattery said staff worked hard to provide the best care possible for people in the Pine Rivers region.

“We are really proud of this centre that delivers a number of community and primary health services in one place,” Ms Slattery said.

“This is a great example of a multi-functioning health service.”
