The Peninsula is set to benefit from a new ambulance station at Woy Woy Hospital, as part of the NSW Government’s $232 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration Program.
The new station will ensure local paramedics have the latest facilities to best deliver local emergency care needs, and relocates the existing Ettalong Ambulance Station to Woy Woy Hospital.
NSW Ambulance and Health Infrastructure worked to identify the location using best practice modelling software to determine the most suitable location for mobile emergency care in the region.
The new station will feature
internal parking for up to 10 emergency ambulance vehicles
administration and office areas
training and meeting rooms
Next steps include community engagement, design development and securing planning approvals for the new ambulance station. The station is due for completion in 2022.
The NSW Government’s $232 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration Program is the single largest investment in regional NSW Ambulance’s 126-year history.
