The new Murrumburrah-Harden Health Service has officially opened, with residents, staff and community gathering to celebrate the memorable occasion.
The new facility maintains its current 33 bed total, including flexible inpatient beds which can be used for both residential and inpatient care. Services include:
- emergency care
- acute inpatient beds
- residential aged care in a home-like environment
- integrated primary and community health
- ambulatory care
- three new staff accommodation units.
Solar electricity panels have been installed on the new building to assist energy-efficiency and reduce running costs.
The redevelopment of this facility is part of the fifth stage of the $297 million NSW Government’s Multipurpose Service (MPS) program aimed at improving access to health and aged care services for small and remote rural communities by providing new or upgraded facilities.
