NSW Premier Mike Baird, Health Minister Jillian Skinner and Member for Lismore Thomas George joined Federal Health Minister Sussan Ley and Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan to reopen the Lismore Hospital after the third stage of works have been completed.
The third stage of the works saw enabling works done that will improve the pathology, temporary maternity and mortuary services going forward, at a cost of $80.25 million.
NSW Premier Mike Baird spoke of the State Government's commitment to improving Health Services in the region.
“We’re committed to improving health care across regional NSW and Lismore Base Hospital now offers the most contemporary health services in the region,” Mr Baird said.
“Our huge hospital building boom continues. We have committed $180 million to the next stage of the redevelopment – with major redevelopments already completed across regional NSW from Tamworth to Bega.”
Mrs Skinner also spoke highly of the project
“Lismore Base Hospital now has an emergency department that is a beacon for health care across the Northern Rivers and is more than three times the size of the previous one. And patients now have a modern Renal Unit, improved access to parking, as well as spacious treatment areas and light-filled rooms throughout.”
The redevelopment was jointly funded by the NSW Government ($20 million) and the Commonwealth ($60.25 million).
