MORE medical and allied health facilities have been opened in Beaudesert with the official opening on Tuesday of the Beaudesert Fair medi-hub.
A Beaudesert Fair shopping centre spokeswoman said the expansion of the existing Beaudesert Family Practice featured a skin care clinic, dentist, imaging services and a Sullivan Nicolaides pathology clinic.
"The existing independent pharmacy is transforming into Priceline," the spokeswoman said.
"This amplification has been accompanied by an additional 63 shaded car spaces with direct access to the 'Medi-Hub' that will ensure ease of access and a convenient experience to all who visit."

Wright federal MP Scott Buchholz said the new facilities were good news for Beaudesert.
"It was my absolute pleasure to open the Beaudesert Fair MediHub," he said.
"This service is being provided by these wonderful businesses, bringing together a cluster of medical facilities - showing the maturity of Beaudesert and the Scenic Rim.
"It means better local health services for the people of Beaudesert.
"I think this encourages local people, not only to take care of their health, but it sends a strong message about what a great place Beaudesert is to live, work and raise a family. It says we have the services and professionals with the right skill set, right here in our community, to look after us.
"Beaudesert Fair has done a great job putting this facility together and it enables a range of health care services to be supplied in a sort of 'one stop shop'. I congratulate all involved.
"I wish all the businesses, staff and patients the very best for success. It is great to see this investment in Beaudesert."
