Albury Wodonga Health is committed to ensuring better healthcare for you, your family and our community. We are proud to share the release of our multi-million dollar Albury Emergency Department upgrade.
Funded by the NSW Government, the development will significantly expand local emergency service delivery and provide contemporary emergency care facilities for the Albury Wodonga region.
The new facility will include a specialised resuscitation hub, paediatric treatment area, acute treatment area, and multiple triage rooms with their own accompanying waiting rooms. Additional ambulance bays, X-Ray and CT Scanning spaces, behavioural assessment rooms and private family consult rooms are also included in the project.
“In line with Albury Wodonga Health’s Strategic Plan, this development will provide the community with increased access to high-quality emergency health care,” AWH Chief Executive Officer, Michael Kalimnios, said.
“The new ED will have 42 treatment spaces, providing more than double the number of care points compared to Albury’s current ED. Along with increased points of care, the streaming of services will improve patient care and safety by allowing extra privacy and the flexibility to cater for a broader range of specialist services.”
Construction works are expected to commence in early 2022, pending a number of approvals, and from there the project is expected to take 12 months to complete.
Plans are in place to minimise interruptions to service delivery during the construction period. Staff will continue to deliver emergency care through the Albury and Wodonga EDs as usual.
