A new HealthOne facility has opened on the former Ulladulla Community Health Centre site and another is under construction on the former Dapto Community Health Centre site.
What is HealthOne?
HealthOne NSW brings together a variety of community health and other health professionals in multidisciplinary teams at the one location. The initiative aims to bring health care professionals together to reduce the increasing burden of chronic disease and to focus on those people in the community who need a greater level of coordinated care.
The centres aim to:
- Reduce avoidable hospital admissions
- Improve service access and health outcomes for disadvantaged and vulnerable groups
- Provide timely, safe and high quality care for clients
- Provide a new sustainable model of health care delivery
Both HealthOnes will include the services which worked within the former Centres, along with some other services being amalgamated from other sites in the District.
Construction of Ulladulla HealthOne began in August 2019 and opened to the public on 25 November 2020.
The two-storey centre is a far cry from the previous brick cottage it replaces on the Princes Highway and offers stunning views of the coast.
The Centre features consulting rooms, two dental surgeries, multipurpose meeting rooms, open work plan areas and breakout rooms.
It has been designed and built with a focus on environmental sustainability, including the use of solar panels, double glazed windows, automated air conditioning control and outlets for electric car chargers.
Ulladulla HealthOne services:
- Aboriginal Health
- Aged Care
- Allied Health
- Child and Family Services
- Diabetes Services
- Domestic Family Violence and Sexual Assault Service
- Drug and Alcohol
- Health Promotion
- Oral Health
- Mental Health
- New Street

The centre is at the corner of South Street and the Princes Highway, phone 4455 9999. It is open from 8:30am-5pm.
