The facility offers a wide range of health services, including General Practice, Physiotherapy, Exercise Physiology, Occupational Therapy, an Inter-professional Clinic, Speech Pathology and Psychology.
Many of the clinics relocated into James Cook University’s Clinical Practice Building (CPB) at the end of 2013, and the last two clinics moved in April this year.
Associate Professor Bev Raasch, Clinical Director, JCUHealth said Sunday would be an exciting day, with a variety of information sessions, free health assessments, tours and displays available to the public.
“We would really encourage the public, JCU staff, students and prospective JCU students to take this opportunity to walk around the JCUHealth clinics which are spread across two floors in the CPB,” Associate Professor Raasch said. “The clinics offer a professional health service not only to the JCU community but to all of Townsville.”
JCUHealth is a patient-focused health care facility which also provides an opportunity for JCU students to work alongside the clinicians to gain firsthand experience.
Other health services in the CPB include the state-of-the-art JCU Dental and recently opened Queensland X-Ray practice.
