The Royal Flying Doctor founder’s name has been fixed to the NZ village operator’s third village in Burwood East, 17km east of the Melbourne CBD. The first of its 430 residents are expected to move in in September.
Ryman Healthcare is known for naming all its retirement villages after exceptional people with its first Melbourne village, opened in Wheelers Hill in 2014, named in honour of Sir Edward ‘Weary’ Dunlop, and second in 2019, also in Wheelers Hill, named after Dame Nellie Melba.
Ryman now has 11 villages under management, development or planning across Victoria.
