Member for Oxley Melinda Pavey has announced the location of the new Macksville Hospital to be at a site 3 kilometres north of Macksville town centre.
“The new site is going to be better located between the two major population centres,” she said.
"I'm particularly proud that we are able to deliver a 'greenfield site' - which will provide a modern, purpose-built facility providing contemporary health services to the people of the Nambucca Valley and the broader region.”
The Macksville Hospital Development will include improved facilities in Emergency, Community Health, Operating Theatres, Maternity and Inpatient Units.
The designs of the new hospital will be exhibited to the community in early 2018, with early works set to begin mid 2018.
