The Maitland community will today get to see the stunning design of the $470 million Maitland Hospital and learn more about its world-class health services, including the region’s first chemotherapy service.

Health Minister Brad Hazzard encouraged locals to come to a community information session being held at Stockland Green Hills on the new hospital.

“Congratulations to the local community and all of the doctors, nurses and other hospital staff who have worked so hard, together with the project team, to bring this exciting new hospital to life,” Mr Hazzard said.
