Community Open Day for new Lismore Base Hospital ED
The Northern NSW Local Health District (NNSW LHD) will throw open the doors of Lismore Base Hospital’s (LBH) new state-of-the-art Emergency Department (ED) and Renal Unit during a Community Open Day this Saturday 30 July, 2016.

The new ED and Renal Unit, which are scheduled to open late August, are the first sections completed of LBH’s $260 million redevelopment.

The ED and Renal Units comprise part of the Stage 3A redevelopment jointly funded by the NSW Government’s $20 million, and the Commonwealth Government’s $60.25 million provided under the Health and Hospitals Fund.

The NSW Government has provided an additional $180 million for Stage 3B of the redevelopment which will include new medical and surgical wards, a new Women’s Care Unit (maternity), new operating theatres and central sterilising unit, and a new paediatric ward.

NNSW LHD Chief Executive Wayne Jones said the Community Open Day would provide residents, staff, and their families with a first-hand inspection of the new 51-bay ED and 18-bay Renal Unit.

“The operational commissioning of the completed 51 bay state-of-the-art ED is currently underway, and we are very excited to be showcasing this remarkable facility which has been described as being among the best in the State,” Mr Jones said.

The Community Open Day will be held on Saturday 30 July from 11am to 2pm. No bookings are required and free parking will be available in the new Uralba Street multi-storey carpark from 11am to 2pm. No food or drink will be permitted to be taken on the tour.
