Construction works for Stage 1A of the $60 million Inverell Hospital are complete and final operational commissioning tests are underway, with opening to the public scheduled for Monday 25 May 2020. The redevelopment brings together all the acute services including Emergency, Medical Imaging, Renal Dialysis, Inpatient Unit, Maternity, Paediatrics, Day Surgery and an Operating Theatre.
Stage 1B includes the refurbishment of most of the existing Inverell Hospital building to enable the relocation of services from the existing Community Health building. ACOR has been providing peer review for engineering components and design finalisation in collaboration with lead contractor Richard Crookes Construction.
Once complete, the refurbished facility will offer adult ambulatory care, including mental health services, women’s and children’s health services, chronic disease treatment programs and allied health.
