Moree Renal Dialysis Unit
The $2 million Moree Renal Dialysis Unit development will deliver a single story extension to the ground floor of the hospital facing Victoria Terrace.
The development will include an area for seven open renal bays, and one isolation renal bay to assist in caring for patients that may be infectious.
The new space will be a contemporary, welcoming environment that will allow patients to receive safe and efficient care.
Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall was joined by Moree Plains Shire Mayor Katrina Humphries and Mehi Sector Manager David Quirk to mark the start of construction of the new, purpose-built, $2 million Renal Dialysis Unit at Moree District Hospital.
The new facility will be designed to modern standards and will be spacious with a pleasant outlook. The additional room means renal patients are able to more easily have visitors with dialysis often taking many hours. The new 8-chair facility will replace the old 5-chair facility and be built by regional company Rice Construction.
