Family-owned and operated medical centre

Pakenham Family Health is a family-owned and operated medical centre. Our business principles are firmly based on family values with a particular focus on long-term health management of our patients as opposed to the “turnstyle” service practiced by some of the medical centres today.

Pakenham is located on the edge of the Melbourne metropolitan area. It is a region experiencing massive residential and commercial property development with the annual population growth of over 10%.

Growing number of patients at Pakenham Family Health

Pakenham's population boom

The population boom brings with it added pressure on local services including primary healthcare. Pakenham Family Health will be relieving this pressure by bringing in new GPs, practice nurses, allied health professionals and visiting specialists.

We have state of the art facilities at Pakenham Family Health

Our facilities

The facilities at the clinic are purpose-built and were designed to meet the latest medical standards prescribed by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.
