Our newest family member now has a name

Posted by McKenzie | 16 Jul 2018

After a very successful naming competition, our newest family member has been named!

Recently at McKenzie we asked everyone we know to help us come up with a name for our newest aged care community in Buderim. The response has been amazing and we thank you for your suggestions.


Picking a favourite was not easy


Some names made us laugh. (You know who you are.) Others made us become a little teary because they were truly heartfelt. But most of all, reading so many beautiful names has made us feel really proud that you hold McKenzie Aged Care in such high regard. It really means a lot to us.


So now, without further ado, we are pleased to make the announcement that everyone has been waiting for.


Drum roll please


The newest, architect-designed, world-class McKenzie Aged Care community in Buderim will be called The Ormsby, named after the well–known local family who once farmed this property. It’s a name that has a long heritage, is very local, and also says “family”.  So it’s a lot like McKenzie Aged Care. This is why we chose it.


Our winner has been notified


Janet was as excited as we were, saying this was quite a personal project for her. She’s looking forward to sharing her 4 big theme park pass with her family.


The new name already has a logo


We have commissioned a logo for The Ormsby that uses symbolism and natural colours to celebrate its stunning hinterland location.


But wait till you see inside


Since our other local aged care community, Buderim Views was built, it has become a big and much loved part of the local community and we have the same high expectations for The Ormsby.


Designed by Fender Katsalidis, The Ormsby will boast spacious rooms, each with their own ensuite and many with views of the tranquil treescape. It will be a welcoming community with a café, lounges, dining rooms, library, hair salon and even its own Wellness Room. The lush, landscaped grounds will also feature a rainforest walk. With so much to offer, we will be choosing our competition’s best runner-up names for this residence’s  key features and wings. These will be unveiled as part of the Grand Opening.


Our first residents will be welcomed April 2019


That will be here before you know it. So please call 1300 899 222 to register your interest so we can keep you updated of developments. In the meantime, feel free to visit the website for more information about McKenzie Aged Care.
