Mounties Group takes out NSW Clubs & Community Award for its innovative boutique care service

Published on

Established in 1964 as the Mt Pritchard & District Community Club, the club group now has a number of clubs across Sydney and the Central Coast including Harbord Diggers which is home to a five-star retirement village and an intergenerational precinct.

The Club group has won the Health & Wellbeing category at the Clubs & Community Awards 2021 for launching Mounties Care, a free health and wellbeing service available to all of its 160,000-plus members, late last year.

Mounties partnered with Sydney-based Vitalis Health and Home Care, which offers a range of integrated care services, including:

  • Free members health line manned by Registered Nurses and available 8:30am-5pm, Monday to Friday
  • Home care services
  • Care navigation
  • Allied health
  • Hospital at Home
  • General Practitioners
  • Mental health support
  • Women’s health

The group says ‘Mounties Care’ was developed after a customer feedback survey held last year revealed the main concern of members was the health and wellbeing of themselves and their loved ones.

CEO Dale Hunt said: “I could not be prouder of what we have achieved as a team this past year and bringing Mounties Care to our members, amalgamating with more venues and being able to help more people in NSW as a result, is a defining moment for us.”

“Just being recognised for the work that we are doing, let alone winning, is something we can all be proud of. I am excited to see what the next year brings as we invest further into the initiatives and programs that really matter to our members.”
