A new video shows construction moving ahead on the new Tweed Valley Hospital, a significant expansion of both existing and new health services for the community, treating around 5,000 patients closer to home.
Minister for Health and Minister for Regional Health, Ryan Park toured the site to see progress on one of the largest infrastructure projects in Northern NSW, set to open its doors to patients in 2024.
In addition to delivering the existing hospital services more efficiently, new radiation oncology and interventional cardiology services will be available at the new hospital.
Valuable feedback from staff helped shape the new facility to create an inviting workplace, with open air spaces, on-call staff accommodation and a purpose-built learning, development, and research centre to entice new staff to the region.
Construction is almost complete on a new multi-level car park with 1,000 free spaces. Rooftop solar panels have also been installed at the hospital, which at full capacity will provide up to a quarter of the hospital’s electricity requirements.
