National labour hire agency Altaira Services has officially opened a new Allied Health and Wellness Centre to align with the needs of their clients and the wider industries they work within. The Centre is an exciting initiative to support Altaira’s recent expansion of an Allied Health Division. Situated on their current premises in Campbelltown, this space has been transformed. In addition to the Allied Health and Wellness Centre, it includes a dedicated Aged Care Specific Training room.
Altaira continues to be committed to providing the highest quality of service as passionate advocates for the aged care and community industries, as well as the recruitment sector. Altaira’s Directors Gaynor Giro and Jelena Giro have been instrumental in enhancing Altaira’s growth, enabling the organisation to expand with the Allied Health Division and Allied Health and Wellness Centre. Altaira is recognised as a market leader in South Australia and beyond, and has a strong reputation for providing quality Nurses, Allied Health Professionals, Personal Care Workers, Hospitality and Cleaning staff for both short term and long-term placements to a range of valued clients nationally.
The expansion means that now Altaira’s highly specialised Allied Health and Wellness team of clinicians can provide the highest quality holistic and evidence-based care. Their range of services which suit companies or individuals needs including: Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Return to Work Rehabilitation, Pre-Employment Functionals and other vital services to the Aged Care and Community Sector, but also to the wider community.
“Our client relationships are our top priority, and last year, we identified that our clients were requiring an increased number of allied health professionals for short and long-term placements," said Jelena Giro, Director of Altaira. "We saw that in order to continue meeting the needs of our clients and the wider community, we would need to expand and evolve our organisation. Therefore, we appointed a dedicated Allied Health and Wellness Operations Manager, Michael Zoumaras, who is leading the new division with a focus on holistic client-centred care and meaningful rehabilitation outcomes.
“Michael empowers Altaira staff to be highly proficient across different fields of physio and occupational therapy, to assist them to become more well-rounded health professionals and in turn, be able to provide a higher quality service to our clients.”
Altaira has a strong focus on professional development, and staff and clients will be encouraged to utilise the new Centre’s Aged Care Specific Training Room to embrace the many opportunities to further their learning, empowering them to raise industry standards and ultimately improve the quality of work and care that they can provide. Equipped with the latest aged care equipment, it allows for all using this facility to shift the focus from theory to practical experience and continued growth of knowledge in the industry.
“One of our strategic achievements over the years that I am truly proud of is, as result of setting strong foundations within the business, it has enabled us with the ability to continuously evolve when the market and industry shifts," Ms Giro said. "This ability to evolve was vital more than ever due to the unpredictable nature of the pandemic. The last 18 months have highlighted that Altaira is well equipped to handle unforeseen challenges. We are proud that despite such uncertainties, we have still experienced significant commercial growth. This growth means we are now able to offer an extensive range of services to our clients and the community without sacrificing what we truly stand for; compassion, care and responsibility.”
The new centre is now open, and Altaira is seeking highly motivated Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists to join them as they continue to grow their Allied Health team. New graduates and experienced clinicians are encouraged to apply for ongoing casual/temporary roles, as well as contract and permanent placements.
