Public invited to tour new Tweed Valley Hospital

Community members are invited to take a behind the scenes look at the new $723.3 million Tweed Valley Hospital at a Community Open Day next month.

NSW Regional Health Minister, Ryan Park said visitors will be able to take a walk through some of the key hospital services, including the emergency department, cancer services, maternity services and the outpatient department.

“The open day is a wonderful chance for people to come and familiarise themselves with the new hospital before it opens to patients on 14 May this year,” said Minister Park

“This much needed redevelopment is providing a massive healthcare boost to Northern NSW and I’m excited to see its long-term impact on the community.”

The new Tweed Valley Hospital will provide a number of new and enhanced services including new interventional cardiology, new radiotherapy as part of integrated cancer care, satellite medical imaging within the Emergency Department, and enhanced surgical services.

The hospital will also provide an expanded outpatients department, mental health service and medical inpatient units.

With construction of the hospital complete, work is underway to ensure that the new building and its staff are ready to safely receive patients. This includes installing furniture, fixtures, and equipment, completing clinical cleaning, stocking departments with medical consumables, and training and orientating staff.

The Community Open Day to be held on Saturday, March 16th, is a free event, with kids’ activities and refreshments also available on the day.  Free onsite parking will be available in the multi-deck carpark.
