In good news for residents of Port Macquarie, works on Stage 1 of the $11.5 million car park expansion for Port Macquarie Base Hospital are now complete.
The car park expansion complements Port Macquarie Base Hospital’s completed $104 million redevelopment which delivered a new emergency department, additional beds, operating theatres, inpatient wards and services.
Health Infrastructure’s project team joined the Local Health District, hospital staff and political representatives to celebrate the event.
Stage 1 has delivered a 113-space staff parking area. The total investment will deliver over 300 new car parking spaces, helping to ease the burden on staff, patients and visitors to the busy regional hospital.
The project remains on track for completion in late 2020 at which time paid parking will be introduced across the hospital campus.
Port Macquarie Base Hospital is the major referral hospital for the Hastings Macleay Clinical Network and provides the majority of specialist medical and surgical services for communities in the region.
Adding to this is the new $17.5 million, 24-bed Port Macquarie Mental Health Expansion Project.
