Catholic Healthcare will be opening a new aged care home every four to six months from the end of next year, reports managing director David Maher from Dubbo.
In five years the not-for-profit organisation will have doubled its almost $1 billion investment to date in the sector, he says.
But the focus for the organisation which is celebrating its 25th anniversary is not infrastructure and dollars.
"We want to support clients live fulfilling lives and there are lots of opportunities to do that," Mr Maher said.
The executive travelled from Sydney to Dubbo on Tuesday to join clients, staff and volunteers of Catholic Healthcare celebrate the anniversary.
The event at Holy Spirit Dubbo is one of nine being held across Catholic Healthcare's expanding footprint.
Catholic Healthcare has "60 services" in NSW and south-eastern Queensland with the "majority of them residential aged care homes".
In the mix are also retirement villages and community services.
Mr Maher said it was moving into Victoria as part of the challenge of "responding to the geographical areas where more care is needed".
"We opened three new homes in the last 12 months and we're building three others as we speak now," he said.
"By about the end of next year we will be opening a new home every four to six months.
"In the next three to six months we will tick over to $1 billion worth of infrastructure.
"In five years time that will be $2 billion."

Catholic Healthcare operates Holy Spirit Dubbo, Lourdes Hospital, St Mary's Villa and community services.
"Dubbo has probably the largest concentration of services in one regional city," Mr Maher said.
Lourdes Hospital, offering rehabilitation and palliative care services, is now the only hospital owned by Catholic Healthcare.
"We are fully committed to that as a service for the community," Mr Maher said.
The Catholic Healthcare precinct off Tony McGrane Place, including its community services offices, Lourdes Hospital and Holy Spirit Dubbo, may grow.
"We have all sorts of dreams for this precinct in terms of retirement living and things of that nature, but that is in the future," Mr Maher said.
