$1.3m to give Nyngan a healthy boost

Friday, 28 July 2017

The Nyngan community has received a healthy boost with the completion of the Nyngan Medical Centre.
Minister for Regional Development Fiona Nash said she was delighted to see the project reach completion, with the Medical Centre set to improve health outcomes in the region.
“During my time as Minister for Rural Health I have seen the dividends a Medical Centre like this can create for the community, such as reducing the need for excessive travel to receive essential medical services,” Minister Nash said.
“I aim to build the kinds of communities our children and grandchildren either want to stay in or come back to. This new Medical Centre will improve access to crucial health services and increase the level of prevention and intervention measures available to residents.”
Federal Member for Parkes Mark Coulton, who joined the community for the opening today, said the new state of the art facility, would reduce the overall cost to the health system by reducing pressure on the local hospital.
“The Medical Centre features two general practitioners rooms, two specialist consultation rooms and a medical procedure room, reducing the need for patients to be admitted to local hospitals,” Mr Coulton said.
“An estimated 2,000 people will use this facility each year, and it will provide the town of Nyngan with the critical infrastructure it needs to grow.”
Mayor of Bogan Shire Council Ray Donald said our new Medical Centre has settled in well and is now in operation and is certainly meeting the expectations that it would provide a major upgrade to the level of medical services available to Bogan Shire residents.
"This is a fantastic outcome for our Shire, and we are happy to see the Australian Government investing in the health and wellbeing of our residents,” Cr Donald said.
This project was jointly funded by the Australian Government ($611,432), the Bogan Shire Council ($653,568), and Straits Tritton Mine ($35,000).
