mecwacare acquires Royal Freemasons’ Flora Hill facility in Bendigo

Royal Freemasons Flora Hill, Bendigo, Victoria

mecwacare, a Victorian aged care and disability services provider, has announced its acquisition of the Flora Hill Aged Care Residence in Bendigo from Royal Freemasons. The ownership transfer is set to take place on May 1, 2024.

Royal Freemasons, a Victoria-based Not-For-Profit, is divesting most residential aged care homes, intending to keep only the 192-bed Coppin Centre in Melbourne, while also maintaining its presence in home care.

The Flora Hill Aged Care Residence, known for its well-established and specialised care provisions, caters to residents with diverse needs, including general residential care, dementia care, palliative care, and respite services.

mecwacare, in operation since 1959, has been a dedicated provider of aged care and disability services, in-home and community nursing, retirement living, and affordable housing options.

“We are thrilled to once again work with Royal Freemasons and welcome the Flora Hill Aged Care Residence to our mecwacare family”

mecwacare CEO Anne McCormack. 

Inside Ageing recently spoke with Ms McCormack about her views on the year ahead, where she referenced a commitment to an ‘integrated client journey’. This connects services from home care through to residential care, with the possibility of introducing additional services.
