The $4 million Coraki Campbell HealthOne was given the official seal of approval today when NSW Minister for Health Brad Hazzard and Member for Clarence Chris Gulaptis formally opened the new health hub.
Member for Clarence Chris Gulaptis said: “The community and clinicians came together to plan and deliver a wonderful health facility with improved services which will benefit thousands of people.
“Families no longer have to travel great distances to access a variety of allied health services including speech pathology and physiotherapy as it’s all under the one roof.”
The multi-million dollar facility has been open to the community since May and is also delivering counselling services, community nursing, women’s health and dental clinics, immunisation and child and family health nursing.
Mr Hazzard said the health needs of rural and regional NSW are being backed by unprecedented Government spending on vital health infrastructure. In 2017/18 more than $550 million has been committed for essential health bricks and mortar for regional NSW.
“The Coraki Campbell HealthOne is a one-stop shop for the local community when they need a helping hand in health,” Mr Hazzard said.
“The purpose-designed centre, with state of the art consultation rooms, treatment rooms and equipment allows families and individuals to stay on top of their health concerns, right here in their own town.”
Planning for the new centre involved extensive consultation between management of the Northern NSW Local Health District and the Coraki and District Health Reference Group.
