Rupanyup's Stonehaven Nursing Home is set to receive $2.118 million of Victorian government funding for the second stage of its refurbishment project.
The funding will allow for a new kitchen, a large family and resident community lounge and dining area, disability access improvements and a nurse call upgrade.
This comes after the first success grant for the project was announced in late 2020, valued at $2.592 million.
West Wimmera Health Service acting chief executive Darren Welsh said the funding would provide much needed upgrades to the nursing home facility.
"Our Rupanyup facility has been a high priority project of the health service since the amalgamation. The facility is much in need of a thorough update and we are extremely grateful for the support of the Victorian Government for the second stage of the three stage project," he said.
"The investment of $4.711 million into this key health facility in Rupanyup provides this community an optimistic future, with infrastructure committed to local health services for decades."
