The final stage of the Lismore Base Hospital redevelopment is now complete, says the NSW Liberals and Nationals government.

Minister for Regional Health, Bronnie Taylor, and ‘Duty MLC for Lismore’, Ben Franklin, officially opened the new buildings last week saying it completes ‘almost a decade of construction throughout the many stages of the $312 million project’.

Stage 3C

Mrs Taylor said the new health facilities ‘will allow for contemporary models of care that clinicians and staff are excited to deliver in their local community’.

Stage 3C of the Lismore Base Hospital redevelopment includes: ‘A refurbished medical ward with stroke, acute delirium beds and general medical beds with a gym and an activities of daily life kitchen; new outpatients department; a new cardiology unit, with co-located coronary care beds and step-down cardiology beds in the one unit, making it easier for staff to provide ongoing care to these patients; community health facilities on the main hospital campus; an auditorium; a new front entrance and reception area; and a new library, education centre, meeting and training rooms’.
