In good news for emergency care in NSW’s Northern Rivers, construction on Pottsville’s new ambulance station is complete.
Health Infrastructure joined NSW Ambulance, paramedics and political representatives to celebrate the event.
Designed with input from local paramedics, the modern, purpose-built station is tailored to the community’s needs and includes:
- Internal parking for up to four emergency ambulance vehicles
- Logistics and storage areas
- Relief accommodation
- Staff parking
- Deliveries and loading bay.
Next steps include internal fit-out and operational commissioning by NSW Ambulance, ahead of the station going live in the coming months.
Pottsville’s new ambulance station forms part of the NSW Government’s $122 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration (RAIR
) program, helping local paramedics better meet regional emergency medical care needs well into the future.
To date, 23 upgraded, rebuilt or new regional and rural ambulance stations have been announced under the RAIR program, including completed stations at Wagga Wagga, Coolamon, Ardlethan, Harden, Molong, Griffith, Kiama, Berry, Bay & Basin, Toukley, Wauchope, Hamlyn Terrace and Bathurst.
These exciting RAIR projects represent the biggest regional and rural transformation of NSW Ambulance infrastructure in the organisation’s history.
