Secure Extended Care

The Secure Extended Care Unit (SECU) is a 25-bed facility providing secure inpatient treatment and care for people who require an extended period of sustained treatment and rehabilitation or treatment and care in a contained environment.

Potential SECU clients are typically difficult to engage in treatment with behaviours that, in the absence of a stable, structured environment, can put themselves and the community at risk.

SECU provides services to St Vincent's, Northern, North West and Austin Health Networks.
