Member for Dubbo Troy Grant and NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard will visit Mudgee on August 14 to tour the Hospital and meet with health staff and the community about plans for the new Hospital.
The NSW Government originally committed $60 million towards the project increasing it to $70.2 million in this year’s state budget which Mr Grant said is fantastic news for Mid-Western region.
“Before the last election I made a $60 million commitment to everyone in the Mid-Western region that I would deliver a new Hospital for Mudgee,” Mr Grant said.
“This exciting project will soon be cranking along after receiving a $10.2 Million funding boost announced as part this year’s state budget bringing the total project to $70.2 Million.”
“$8 million will be spent on the project in this financial year alone,” Mr Grant said.
NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard said thanks to the hard work of Troy Grant, the redevelopment of Mudgee Hospital is going full steam ahead.
“I am looking forward to meeting Hospital staff and community members when I visit later this month.” Mr Hazzard said
The community meeting will be held in the Club Mudgee Auditorium, from 9:30am to 10:30am on August 14.

The Mudgee Hospital needs its own CT or MRI machine.
Too many patients are sent to Dubbo, and by then a fatal head injury could have been detected in Mudgee and patient sent to Sydney not west.
The machine would be of benefit to many people that travel to Orange or Dubbo for this service.
Yes, we have a CT at out privately owned radiology, but they don't except emergency's and after hours patients and we are sent away.
The cost of these machines is not very much.
