Sod turned for ambulance station at hospital site
The first sod has been turned to mark the start of the ambulance station construction at the Woy Woy Hospital site.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Mr Adam Crouch, who attended the ceremony, said: "It is an exciting day to see construction now underway on our new multimillion dollar ambulance station which will be a game-changer for our outstanding local paramedics.
"The new Woy Woy station has been designed and tailored to the needs of the Peninsula community and will ensure our local paramedics can continue to deliver high-quality emergency healthcare.
"The station will feature internal parking for 10 emergency ambulance vehicles, administration and office areas, training and meeting rooms, an external wash bay, on-site staff parking, logistics and storage area and gym."
He said the Woy Woy ambulance station would support the brand new station in Kincumber which was announced as part of this year's NSW Budget in June.
Minister for Regional Health Ms Bronnie Taylor said the new Woy Woy ambulance station would replace the existing station at Ettalong.
NSW Ambulance assistant commissioner Ms Clare Lorenzen said: "Our paramedics need and deserve the best possible workplace for emergency medical care, and this new station will make a real difference to their working environment.
"Ettalong ambulance station will continue to operate until the new station at Woy Woy is complete." she said.
The new Woy Woy ambulance station is due for completion in the middle of next year.
Patterson Building Group is undertaking construction.
