Armidale Hydrotherapy Pool to reopen 24 July

​Work to ensure the safety of Armidale Hospital's Hydrotherapy Pool is now complete, and the pool will re-open to users on Monday, 24 July 2017.

Manager of the Tablelands Sector Wendy Mulligan said staff have has been working hard to re-open the pool.

"We understand this has been an inconvenience for the users of the pool but it's important that it is safe and sustainable," Ms Mulligan said.

"A replacement water treatment system has now been installed and water testing is complete. The pool is consistently meeting strict water quality standards that were not possible before."

As part of the process to bring the pool up to speed, Hunter New England Health identified that the building's roof structure also needed repairing.

"We engaged a local contractor as soon as possible to complete this work, and it has now been finalised," Ms Mulligan said.

Adam Marshall, Member for Northern Tablelands, said the pool is an important community asset, and he is pleased to see it reopening.

"This pool is well utilised by young and old in Armidale, and I'm thrilled it will soon be back up and running. Now we have some breathing room while we plan long-term a new pool at a new location that will continue to serve the community well into the future."

Regular users of the pool will be contacted by their service provider and advised of timetables.
