Northern NSW Local Health District Chief Executive Wayne Jones and Board Chair Dr Brian Pezzutti were joined by Mayor Robert Mustow, health officials, members of the community, and Clarence Nationals MP Chris Gulaptis who dug the first official hole.
Evans Head HealthOne is scheduled to open in April 2020, bringing a modern health facility with extra health services to the area.
The new health facility is located close to existing GP services which will link into the services provided by the HealthOne and will have space for car parking.
The new HealthOne will deliver:
- chronic diseases management and lifestyle groups;
- cardiac rehab and respiratory groups;
- child and family therapy groups including Speech Pathology, Physiotherapy, and Occupational Therapy; and
- dietetics and diabetes education services.
Community health services have been temporarily relocated just down the road from the old Community Health Centre.
The new temporary location is Shop 1/33 Woodburn Street, Evans Head.
