The transformation of the Mona Vale Hospital site continues to progress well with demolition starting on the former nurses accommodation to make way for the new permanent ambulance station.
Licensed specialists are busy working to safely remove material containing asbestos from the old building.
The new ambulance station will include parking bays for up to eight ambulance vehicles, administration, office areas and amenities, on site staff parking, a logistics and storage area and a dedicated, fit-for-purpose medication room to store and access restricted medications.
Construction on the new ambulance station is expected to begin in early 2020.
The hospital’s kiosk operated by the Auxiliary has also recently been relocated and is now operating next to the Urgent Care Centre providing hot and cold drinks, food and amenities for hospital patients, visitors and staff.
General Manager Jacqui Edgley said it was wonderful to see the transformation of the hospital campus begin to take shape.
