VIC: Ryman Healthcare buys ninth retirement village site

Published on

The 3.7 hectare site is in Ocean Grove on the Bellarine Peninsula, just 30 minutes from Geelong where the NZ listed operator is also planning a new village.

Chief Development Officer Andrew Mitchell said the site already has development approval for a retirement village and will offer a mix of independent living units and aged care beds, including dementia-level care.

As we reported here, Ryman plans to have five villages up-and-running in Australia by 2020 with a target of two villages a year.

Their other sites are at Wheelers Hill, Brandon Park, Aberfeldie, Coburg and Burwood East in Melbourne, Mt Eliza and Mt Martha on the Mornington Peninsula, and at Geelong.
