About Us

Atharpuch Family Health Centre in Kowanyama official opening took place on Tuesday 22nd June 2021. This is Apunipima Cape York Health Council’s (Apunipima) third purpose built facility in Cape York. Over the last few years Apunipima has opened new facilities in the township of Coen and the community of Aurukun.

The services offered from Atharpuch Family Health Centre will initially focus on maternal child health, allied health and health promotion and prevention programs such as Tackling Indigenous Smoking, Core of Life. Apunipima will also deliver social emotional wellbeing activities through our Men’s Support programs. Apunipima will continue to work with the Kowanyama Health Action Team as the clinic is established in the coming months, to determine health priorities and assess service delivery needs into the future.

Key to the design and layout of the building was the consultation process. Extensive feedback was sought from key stakeholders to ensure that the building is supportive of cultural considerations, while meeting the clinical requirements for modern health service delivery.
