The $60 million Armidale Hospital redevelopment
has officially opened, marking the end of more than four years of planning, development and construction.
The Project Team joined the Local Health District, hospital, community and political representatives to celebrate the significant milestone.
Health Infrastructure Executive Director of Rural and Regional, Rebecca Wark, was thrilled to be part of the delivery team.
"I've got a real passion for rural areas and it's great to be able to invest in the communities and make a real difference to their health systems," she said. "It’s wonderful to have now finished this project and to let everyone get on with running this fantastic new facility."
A contemporary addition to Armidale Hospital, the project’s new four-storey building opened in March 2018 and included:
- Emergency Department;
- Medical Inpatient Unit;
- Intensive Care Unit;
- Surgical Department; and
- Central Sterilising Department.
Final refurbishment of vacated hospital areas just delivered new day surgery and critical care units, plus a new kitchen.
Staff and patients are already benefiting from the redevelopment’s modern flow-through design and enhanced health services.
Delivered by Health Infrastructure in partnership with Hunter New England Local Health District, the redevelopment is improving health care services to the Armidale community now and well into the future.
