Nationals MP for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall has unveiled the $80 million Moree District Hospital redevelopment draft masterplan, which will include a new hospital and clinical services building.
The redevelopment will deliver nurses, doctors, allied health staff and the local community with upgraded clinical facilities, services and health infrastructure.
The redevelopment includes a new clinical services building within the existing hospital site to house services including an emergency department, imaging, operating theatres, birthing suites and an inpatient unit.
Mr Marshall said community and ambulatory care services will be located within a fully refurbished building and Aboriginal Health services will be co-located onsite to provide integrated service benefits for patients and staff.
“This is the largest investment in Moree’s public health facilities in living memory, which is why meticulous planning is being undertaken to ensure every dollar spent results in improved health outcomes for the community, now and for decades to come,” Mr Marshall said.
“I’m determined to see this redevelopment result in a brand new hospital everyone in the community, especially our hard-working staff, can be proud of and will service locals for decades into the future.”
The Moree community is now invited to have its say on the plans for the redevelopment, which has been designed to meet the healthcare needs of the local community now and well into the future.
Community pop-up sessions will be held at the Balo Square Shopping Centre in Moree on Tuesday, 5 April between 4-6pm and Wednesday, 6 April between 12-2pm, where community members can drop in at any time to view the master plan and ask the project team questions.
