The Organisation

Corumbene was founded in 1966 by a small group of industrious, community-minded volunteers who saw a need for improved care of the Derwent Valley’s senior residents. From there, Corumbene has grown from strength to strength, as an independent not-for-profit displaying unwavering commitment to our purpose: “to strengthen our community’s health and wellbeing by delivering innovative, quality health and community services.” With dedication to our values of Teamwork, Respect, Encouragement, Honesty and Stewardship, Corumbene now has a broader community focus including a Rural Primary Health Program, community and in home services, retirement living and social housing. Health Hub on The Avenue is the next chapter, with Stage 1 of The Avenue development due to complete in mid-2023. Stage 2 is expected to proceed (subject to Council approval), involving the building of further retirement homes that will supplement Corumbene’s existing 93-bed stand-alone residential aged care facility, 8 independent living units, 18 social housing dwellings and home support servicing around 450 community clients.
