Acknowledgement of Country
Temple Hills Medical Centre is proud to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which we are located, the Wurundjeri people of the Woiwurrung language group, in the Kulin nation. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
We were very blessed to have local and indigenous artist Safina Stewart commissioned to paint an artwork for the practice celebrating the traditional owners of the land.
Temple Hills Medical Centre was initially foundered by Dr David and Jill Friebel in 1987 on their return from working for an extended period in Niger. It was established as a purpose-built medical centre to service the local Doncaster East area. They built the foundations of a patient-oriented practice providing exceptional care to the local community.
Dr Andrew and Christine Pither
Dr Andrew Pither started at Temple Hills in 2000 and Christine Pither joined the team as a Nurse in 2010. Together they took over the management of the practice in 2012 and were a natural successors as Dr Friebel looked towards retirement. They have continued to build on the firm foundation of excellent medical care provided to generations of patients over many years. Their aim is to support you through all stages of life, in a holistic, empathic and caring manner.
Temple Hills Medical Centre received planning approval in June 2021 for plans that would significantly expand the current capacity of Temple Hills. Building permits were received in December 2021 and construction is due to commence in 2022 with an estimated completion date being the start of 2023. The building will expand to allow Pathology to be located on site and will also add several consulting rooms so that Temple Hills can cater to the growing local population. We realise that during construction there may be significant disruption which we will try to manage as best as possible. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we undergo this big redevelopment.
