Calvary Kooyong Precinct
Calvary Kooyong is a landmark retirement living, health and residential aged care precinct in Caulfield South in Melbourne.
This $154 million integrated precinct brings together premium retirement living in the Hyson Apartments, contemporary residential aged care in the Huntly Suites, Calvary’s in-home care, GP and other health services, and Calvary Bethlehem’s existing specialist health services.
Calvary Kooyong is designed to support its residents’ changing health and lifestyle needs and enable them to live well and in place.
Calvary has been caring for the Melbourne community for more than 80 years and has developed this unique precinct on the site of the old Calvary Bethlehem hospital on Kooyong Road.
