$21.5 Million Redeveloped Muswellbrook Hospital Open Day

Michael Johnsen MP, Member for Upper Hunter is inviting the Muswellbrook community to explore its new and improved $21.5 million redevelopment of Muswellbrook Hospital at a Community Open Day on Friday, 29 November.

Mr Johnsen said the event will be held between 10.30am and 12.30pm on the hospital’s front lawn off Brentwood Street, kicking off with an official welcome to the community.

“This development was part of a commitment by the Nationals in Government to deliver for the people of Muswellbrook and our region, and we have delivered as promised,” Mr Johnsen said.

“I strongly encourage our local Muswellbrook community to come and see this state of the art medical facility of which we are all so proud.”

“There will be short tours of the hospital, a free sausage sizzle, free health checks and a chance to meet the friendly staff.”

Muswellbrook Hospital Manager Wendy Hordern said the event is a perfect opportunity to get to know the new health services.

“We’re so pleased that after watching our redeveloped hospital take shape the community can now get a close look at the new and improved services we now have to offer,” Ms Hordern said.

“The short tours will run through the new hospital entrance, Imaging, Day Stay Unit and the Infusion Unit. We’ll be continuing patient care as normal so we won’t be able to take people through every new facility. However, we’ll be providing fact sheets complete with photographs of all the new services.”

The $21.5 million Muswellbrook Hospital Redevelopment has delivered expanded and refurbished services including:

  • chemotherapy department with four standalone chairs, and a new chemotherapy procedure/isolation room with treatment chair
  • Renal Dialysis Unit with five spaces, and an additional renal dialysis isolation room with treatment chair
  • expanded ambulatory care clinic, with five consultation rooms, one interview room and one treatment room
  • Day Stay Unit with six recovery bays
  • a new medical imaging department.
