MRI services and breast imaging will be available in the Southern Fleurieu Peninsula for the first time from early 2023.

Plans lodged with the State Government by Dr Jones and Partners show the site of the now-closed Apollon Motel in Torrens Street is to be redeveloped by a private company into a $30M ‘brand-new stand alone purpose built clinic’. 

The Victor Medical Centre will occupy the new centre with radiology services and other specialists.

The plan means residents will no longer have to travel 60km to Adelaide to receive treatment.
