Glen Innes and Tamworth communities celebrate new ambulance station openings

The new Glen Innes and Tamworth ambulance stations have been officially opened, enhancing frontline emergency care in the New England region.
The ambulance stations have been delivered as part of the NSW Government’s $232 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration (RAIR) program.
The purpose-built facilities have been designed to meet the increasing demand for emergency medical care and enhance out-of-hospital care for rural and regional communities.
The Glen Innes ambulance station features internal parking for up to six emergency ambulance vehicles, administration and office areas, staff rest facilities, logistics and storage areas, internal wash bay, and staff parking.
Co-located with the Glen Innes Hospital, the new station replaces a 75-year-old station and provides paramedics with modern resources.
The new Tamworth ambulance station includes internal parking for up to 12 emergency ambulance vehicles, external parking for ambulance relief and specialist vehicles, staff rest facilities, administration and office areas, logistics and storage areas, an internal wash bay and a Medic Fit gym.
The RAIR program is the largest investment in regional NSW Ambulance’s almost 130-year history, with 54 new, rebuilt or upgraded ambulance stations being delivered in rural and regional NSW, to support the delivery of enhanced out-of-hospital emergency medical care to the community.
A new ambulance station has also been officially opened at Old Bar, enhancing emergency care across the Mid North Coast. Read more here.
