Somerville is a part of an area known as Western Port, comprising Somerville, Tyabb, Hastings, Bittern and Crib Point. Historically the town had its first railway station in 1889. It was a region renowned for orchards and the fruit produced would go via rail to Flinders Street to be part of a fruit festival. Of note, Somerville is also the base for Inghams which is the largest chicken and turkey producer in Australia.
These days, Somerville has become home to many new residents including young families and retirees. Atticus Health Somerville began operation in the main shopping centre, Centro Somerville, in 2016. We learned about the opportunity after being invited by the pharmacist co-located next door to have a look. The idea stacked up and getting started was a spirited affair, with Atticus staff including receptionists, nurses and doctors all pitching in to paint the place from recollection!
Atticus Health Somerville also supports many of the local residential aged care facilities with hundreds of elderly patients under the care of our doctors.
These days, like virtually everywhere on the Mornington Peninsula, the town of Somerville continues to grow at a rapid pace, with this being brought forward by the construction of Peninsula Link. We look forward to staying a part of this vibrant and growing community, indeed, part of the hustle and bustle of Somerville Centro.
Well, I guess it all started in 2010 when I saw the old “Boatshed Café” for sale across the road from Carrum Station. The house behind the café was being sold with it. I took a walk down to the Patterson River, fell in love with the whole thing, signed away and thought, this is beautiful.
Business plan – what business plan?

When it comes to healthcare, from the outset, we consider first the whole person or organisation, their goals and aspirations. A deep understanding of that allows for the best decisions and outcomes to be reached in partnership after all. With this mentality, we’ve been able to grow. Grow, yet stay humble, still.
The areas we have grown into reflect areas in which we think we can make a real difference and feel highly motivated to be involved with. These areas are:
Medical clinics. We run several GP clinics. This is where we started and continue to persevere, always striving for improvement.
Corporate health. We are happy to work with motivated workplaces to help maximise the health outcomes of their employee base. We consider that workplaces have relevance to and potential input in the health and well being of a community. We conduct our corporate health services with due independence and impartiality, yet at the same time seek to foster a mutual sense of purpose and transparent communication for the benefit of all parties.
Aged Care. We consider the frail and elderly to be particular members of the community who we have a responsibility to care for. From humble beginnings we have grown to supply GP services to nearly 1000 patients living in retirement villages and nursing homes around Melbourne. In particular we are the main provider of GP services to nursing homes on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. Within aged care, our mission is to deliver a 24/7 medical service. We coordinate this by accepting all calls anytime via 1800 ATTICUS (1800 288 4287). Through the cultivation of a strong reputation for quality and compassion over many years, we have seen this area of our business grow substantially.
Telehealth. By attending to matters in a flexible manner by the exchange of images or conversation digitally, we have grown accustomed to creating solutions remotely. This concept, “Telehealth”, does improve efficiency, accessibility and timeliness of health care. It is for this reason that we now offer telehealth services nationwide – it simply makes good sense.
One thing has remained constant throughout, that is, our commitment to getting to know and understand communities. As a provider of medical services, fundamentally we learn so much about the fabric of a community. We share in its ups and downs. As such, we feel compelled to promote deeper, meaningful community spirit. And, we recognise how great an impact this potentially and actually has on the outcomes of health – for the individual and for the collective. Our story then, is very much that of being one with the community.
