NSW Nationals Member for Dubbo Dugald Saunders joined with Hutchinson Builders, Mudgee PCYC, local police, hospital staff and community members for the handover of projects at the PCYC facility.
Hutchinson Builders, the contractor for $70.7m Mudgee Hospital redevelopment, have been actively involved in the local community and completed two community projects whilst the redevelopment has been underway.
They supported the Mudgee PCYC with the upgrade of the pool gym corridor and kitchen, as well as supporting the Mudgee Local Aboriginal Land Council with the erection of a large sheltered space for meetings and workshops at Munna Reserve.
“The value of hospitals to their communities extends far beyond healthcare and this is a perfect example of that,” Mr Saunders said.
“Redevelopments such as this one at Mudgee Hospital provide positive economic and social flow-on effects within regional communities. Not only is there a new hospital coming but Hutchinsons have worked with the community to help with other projects as well.”
The investment in health infrastructure in Mudgee is providing the community with a much needed boost, particularly as the community faces the ongoing challenges of the drought.
