GV Health’s Community Rehabilition Centre (CRC) is a specialist rehabilitation service. The CRC provides assessment, diagnosis and treatment for people with both new symptoms and chronic conditions, through a range of specialist clinics and services.

CRC provides individualised, timely, goal-centred care that aims to improve health outcomes, promote health independence and optimise participation in meaningful activities. CRC helps people who have physical disability, are frail or chronically ill. We also treat those recovering from a traumatic illness or injury to regain and maintain optimal function.
