Inspiro Community Health Service
Inspiro is a local, non-profit community health service that provides dental and allied health services for the Yarra Ranges community from our Lilydale and Belgrave clinics and various community venues. We have dentists to look at your teeth, health professionals to help get you moving and active, health services for children and older people, support if you are living with ongoing illness, podiatrists to look at your feet, someone to talk to about your mental health, and many other services to help you reach your own health goals.
We are located at Lilydale and Belgrave. Call 9028 0153 to speak to us.
Where we came from and where we're going
Even if you've heard of us before you may not know all that much about us. Find out were we came from and why we do what we do below.
We started in 1995 in a small building with only...
Not many people are aware that Inspiro began 23 years ago in 1995 with six staff in a tiny little building. Today Inspiro employs more than 100 staff providing services across our clinics, to thousands of homes and to outreach centres.
Inspiro was known as Ranges Community Health
In 1995, after the amalgamation of Mooroolbark and Sherbrooke Community Health Centres, Ranges Community Health (the name Inspiro used to go by) was officially founded. In 2000 the purpose-built centre in Clarke Street, Lilydale was opened and in 2012 Ranges Community Health officially changed its name to Inspiro in response to community feedback.
Evolving with the times has included our expansion to Belgrave in 2017. The Belgrave Community Hub was a huge project that took years of planning, funding and foresight and only just recently opened. Locals can now access essential health services from our clinic at Belgrave Community Hub, as well as Yarra Ranges Council services like Maternal and Child Health Nursing, and other important services all in one the one expansive and comfortable building.
Inspiro Belgrave - new building
Inspiro moved into the Belgrave Hub located at 1616/1624 Burwood Hwy, Belgrave on Monday 26th March 2019, and had our first public visitors and clients at 9am the next day. Funding for the Belgrave health hub was provided by Government, Yarra Ranges Council and Inspiro.
Not for profit means we can provide better quality health care to a larger number of people
We think it's important to share that we are a not for profit business and reinvest to grow our services to meet the needs of the community .
Our local community-based volunteer board is based around the Yarra Ranges and brings years of experience and expertise, making important decisions about our strategic direction. Our board members are focused on the health and well-being of people in the Yarra Ranges.
The key to our continued success has been our people and their passion for quality health care. Our people genuinely care about our clients and empowering them to achieve their health goals. Despite our growth over the years we have retained our friendly and holistic approach to making health care accessible to everyone.
