WA Governor Kerry Sanderson officially opened Leederville’s new $40 million aged care home on November 13.

Rosewood’s 4941sqm, 120 bed facility has a self-serve cafe, a wellness centre with a podiatry and dental room, physiotherapy area and a medical room for doctors and visiting specialists.

Ms Sanderson unveiled a small plaque as part of the official opening ceremony.

Rosewood chief executive Mario Zulberti said the new facility marked an “exciting, new chapter” and would put Rosewood “at the forefront of the sector”.

He said there were plans to redevelop the West Perth facility to the tune of $74 million which will increase the bed capacity to 152.
