An offer by Whitsunday Regional Council to purchase the Hillside Haven Aged Care Facility at Collinsville has been accepted by receivers and the building is now under contract.
Mayor Andrew Willcox said the council’s offer, now under contract, was well below the reserve at auction and was confidential until the sale officially settles.
“Council is keen to explore all options for the facility to assist the aged community at Collinsville.
“However I can confirm it will not reopen in the near future and will not operate as it has previously as the building is non-compliant and the previous business model is obviously not viable.
“We are going to take a measured approach to the future operation of the building as council looks at options and business models which would allow it to become a sustainable community asset going forward.
“There is a lot of background work to be done before the building can open in any form and council will make sure they have done their homework before deciding on future options,” Mayor Willcox said.
