Inverell and surrounding communities are invited to get sneak preview of the new Inverell Community Health facility on Tuesday April 20 before it officially opens to the public.
The new community health facility was recently completed as part of the $60 million investment into the Inverell Hospital Redevelopment Stage 1B project.
"We're excited that the upgrades to our beautiful new community health facility are complete and encourage community members to come and have a look through the new premises before we officially open," said Susan Heyman, Executive Director Rural and Regional Health Services.
Small group tours will be held on Tuesday from 2pm.
Pre-registration is essential via completing the online form or calling Inverell Community Health on 02 6721 9600.
"A lot of work has occurred to transform the old hospital building, including the patient wards, maternity unit, x-ray rooms and offices into a modern and fit-for-purpose facility to house all our community health services," Ms Heyman said.
"We are really proud of the way our heritage has been able to be maintained in the building, while also ensuring we have contemporary spaces to provide high quality health care to our community based clients.
"Importantly we are now co-located with the new hospital, providing all acute care services and community health services essentially under one roof."
Some of the health services that will be provided from the new community health building include adult ambulatory care, mental health services, women's and children's services, oral health, chronic disease treatment programs and allied health.
The new Inverell Community Health facility will open to the public on Monday, April 26 from 8.30am.
It can be accessed from Swanbrook Road and car parking is available immediately next to the new facility.
