Singleton Hospital Redevelopment
The $7 million infrastructure investment into Singleton Hospital involves the expansion of the west wing of the existing hospital for new clinical areas over two levels including:
- Community Health consultation rooms – consultation rooms for visiting specialists including cardiology, orthopaedics, renal, gynaecology, ear nose and throat, ophthalmology, mental health, sexual health, drug and alcohol, community detoxification, methadone outreach, and women’s health services.
- Imaging Department consisting of x-ray, CT scanner, Ultrasound, Mammogram and Dental X-Ray machines. Hunter Valley Imaging operates all but the general x-ray in the Imaging Department under a partnership with the District.
- Renal Unit consisting of six dialysis chairs and if required an area to isolate patients that may pose an infection risk.
It's official, Singleton Hospital redevelopment is complete. Saturday 8 September marked the grand opening and what a great turn-out we had!
The celebration marked the completion of the $7 million redevelopment, including refurbished clinical areas, the relocation of the main entrance, a new carpark and access hallways.
Michael Johnsen, Member for Upper Hunter, along with Yvonne Patricks, Hunter Valley Sector Manager, formally opened the redevelopment, followed by a smoking ceremony and traditional dance performance from the Wonnarua people.
A huge thank you to all involved- a great morning was had by all!
