Over the years Wurli has moved to a greater focus on the underlying determinants of health, establishing specialised programs for men’s health, mental health and family wellbeing, alcohol and other drugs, tobacco control and others.
These programs have required their own facilities and now Wurli delivers services from a number of locations across Katherine. While we continue to deliver general and acute care at our Main Clinic in Third Street, one of our busiest locations now is Gudbinji, in Kintore Street, where clients with chronic conditions receive a model of care appropriate to their needs.
Population growth, increased availability of health funding through the Commonwealth Government, the need for more specific targeting of illness and Wurli’s desire to provide better services to its clients, have now led our organisation to consider further growth of our facilities in the redevelopment of the main Wurli campus in Third Street. This project will dominate our infrastructure development for years to come.
