The new-look Coffs Hospital

A NEW Emergency Department, more capacity for chemotherapy, renal dialysis and operating theatres are the highlights of today’s State Budget for our community with an additional $38 million announced for the Coffs Harbour Hospital expansion.

Member for Coffs Harbour Andrew Fraser today announced the extra funding, which brings the total funding for the hospital expansion to $194 million.

When Premier Gladys Berejiklian recently toured the hospital, it was estimated the health campus expansion would cost $156 million.

“This is a huge win for our community and I want to thank our hardworking nurses and doctors and the entire hospital workforce who have been at the forefront – working every day to provide essential health services our community deserves,” Mr Fraser said.
