In 2009, the Flinders Ranges Council was successful in obtaining a grand to help fund the refurbishment of Kanyaka Surgery, as part of the Federal Government’s National Rural and Remote Health Infrastructure Program (NRRHIP). With generous support from the government, in 2011, Kanyaka Surgery completed a full renovation, upgrading to state of the art facilities
Completed in 2011, and officially opened by Rowan Ramsey MP, Member for Grey on 8th July 2011, the refurbishment included modifications to the existing building to provide rooms for another GP, medical students and registrars. In addition, two allied health rooms and a room for a practice nurse are included in the new facility. The moficiations to the building has created a an improved facility to develop a comprehensive suite of services to the Flinders Ranges community, and improves the quality of health by avoiding delays in diagnosis and treatment of patients.
Kanyaka Surgery’s facility upgrade was only possible through the kind support of the Quorn Health Advisory Committee, Country Health SA, Flinders and Far North Division of General Practice, Kanyaka Surgery and the Flinders Ranges Council.
