The Elmhurst Bush Nursing Centre has developed the 2024-2027 strategic plan using statistical data from our community, survey results from our consumers and with the consultation from key stakeholders. 

A change to our values and key priority areas have been identified based on communities needs as well as Governance Key Performance Indicators' and Board of Management continual improvement requirements.
