Key stakeholders have today been allowed to tour the site where the new Community Health Centre will be built as part of the $30 million Broken Hill Health Service Redevelopment.
Visitors were given a tour of the site and were updated on the current progress of the construction.
This redevelopment will modernise existing facilities at Broken Hill and ensure the local community has access to first-class health services. The new integrated Community Health Centre includes:
- A five-chair dental health facility
- Child, family and community health services
- New staff offices for the Far West Local Health District.
The upgrade of the Broken Hill Hospital as part of the Health Service Redevelopment is to include reconfiguration of the hospital’s ambulatory care wing to expand cancer care services and consolidate waiting areas for patients.
The structure of the new Centre will be built offsite at Toowoomba, transported to Broken Hill and then assembled onsite at Crystal Street. Construction of the Community Health Centre is scheduled to be completed in early 2019.
