Arcare’s planned $20M aged care facility on former Bupa site in Lake Macquarie goes before NSW Planners

Published on

Private aged care operator Arcare, which has 40 residences in Queensland, NSW and Victoria, is hoping to make it 41.

It has made a Modification Application to the NSW Government to build a new $20 million 110-bed single storey facility in Warners Bay, a suburb of Lake Macquarie.

Arcare bought the site from Bupa, which has divested a number of aged care homes recently, earlier this year. Bupa had approval for a two-storey 144-bed aged care facility on the site, including a health hub.

Arcare are hoping its application will get the green light after an assessment from the Hunter & Central Coast Regional Planning Panel.
