Peel ups ante with sports medicine fa­cil­ity

Pinjarra Murray Times - - NEWS -

PEEL Thun­der Foot­ball Club re­vealed plans for a Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence on Fri­day.

Lo­cal stake­hold­ers, City of Man­durah Mayor Rhys Wil­liams and politi­cians were pre­sented with a fea­si­bil­ity study for a med­i­cal and com­mu­nity fa­cil­ity to be built at Rush­ton Park.

The pro­posed project fea­tures a Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence Sports Medicine, an Al­lied Health Cen­tre, an Imag­ing Fa­cil­ity, a stu­dio for pi­lates, yoga and mas­sage, a Curtin Uni­ver­sity Learn­ing Cen­tre and a café.

The aim of the fa­cil­ity will be to pro­vide a cen­tralised one-stop shop sports med­i­cal ser­vice.

The Al­lied Health Cen­tre and Imag­ing Fa­cil­ity would pro­vide ad­di­tional ser­vices to the com­mu­nity.

Fur­ther op­por­tu­ni­ties raised in the fea­si­bil­ity study in­cluded a hy­drother­apy pool, a Healthy Age­ing Ser­vice Hub and a Com­mu­nity House/Sports Hub.

The pro­posed cen­tre would be on the cor­ner of Dower and Clarice streets.

There would be two lev­els and an ex­ter­nal out­door se­niors ex­er­cise park.

The project is in the ini­tial stages, with con­sul­ta­tion with po­ten­tial ten­ants and anal­y­sis of the po­ten­tial spa­ces re­quired.

If the project goes ahead, the fa­cil­ity open­ing date has been pro­jected for March 2021.
