It’s been an exciting month for ambulance announcements!
Artarmon’s new ambulance superstation was officially opened by the Premier... and Santa - much to the delight of attending students from Artarmon Public School.
The new superstation has doubled its emergency vehicles to 20 and now coordinates the smaller ambulance stations at Lane Cove and Naremburn.
Becoming fully operational in March 2018, the superstation has already responded to 14,800 incidents and transported 12,000 patients.
Improving metropolitan services and working conditions, Artarmon is just one of nine superstations to be delivered by Health Infrastructure as part of the $150 million Sydney Ambulance Metropolitan Infrastructure Strategy (SAMIS) Program.
And in good news for NSW’s Central Coast, construction on the $4.2 million ambulance station in Toukley is now complete!
Part of the $122 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration (RAIR) Program, the new Toukley facility replaces the original station built in 1966.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter and Central Coast, Scot MacDonald, inspected the new station.
Health Infrastructure and NSW Ambulance will now begin the internal fit-out ahead of the station’s operational commissioning in early 2019.
With covered parking for four ambulance vehicles, the station also features staff parking, a kitchen, wash bay, lounge and change rooms with areas for logistics, storage, office and administrative use.
Good news for staff busily working from a purpose-built facility in East Toukley during construction!
Working alongside NSW Ambulance, Health Infrastructure is proud to deliver these rural and metropolitan projects - giving paramedics the contemporary, purpose-built facilities they need to provide the best possible care for the people of NSW.
