Shellharbour Specialist Centre

As part of our major expansion to significantly improve the quality of healthcare services to the Illawarra and provide superior modern medical and rehabilitation care to our patients, our new hospital wing incorporates Shellharbour Specialist Centre consulting suites and rehabilitation centre.

Our Rehabilitation Gymnasium

The 200sqm rehab gym area is accompanied with new allied health facilities including an assisted day living kitchen designed to allow patients to re-enter daily life prior to their discharge. These and other improvements to the rehabilitation centre will ensure the provision of a dedicated and expanded area to treat rehabilitative conditions, giving our patients the safest and best chance for complete recovery.

Our Hydrotherapy Pool

Our 11m therapeutic hydrotherapy pool is located within our rehabilitation centre and the perfect environment for aquatic physiotherapeutic rehabilitation. With private change rooms on-site, patients have a comfortable and relaxed space to prepare for their individually designed hydro programs. These programs are conducted by trained physiotherapists and allied healthcare professionals who are focused on patient recovery and wellbeing.

If you are interested in enquiring on sessional or full-time consulting suites please contact Gary Cadwallender CEO on 02 4295 2999 as we have limited suites available.

Our Specialist Consulting Suites

Comprising 10 new specialist consulting suites, Shellharbour Specialist Centre provides comprehensive care and advanced medical and rehabilitation treatments to our patients under one roof. This means that patients will be consulted upon by one of our Visiting Medical Officers, undergo surgery at our hospital (if required) with their full clinical follow-up completed at our Rehabilitation Centre, Radiography and Pathology clinic on-site at the hospital.
