More than 1,400 keen locals have already registered for a behind-the-scenes look at the construction progress under way for the $723.3 million Tweed Valley Hospital, as part of a Community Open Day taking place this coming Saturday, 18 June 2022.

Member for Tweed Geoff Provest said it’s heartening to see the huge response from the community, who will have the opportunity to join guided tours and see first-hand the construction under way for the new state-of-the-art hospital campus.

“We are thrilled to be throwing open the construction gates this Saturday and welcome the community to the Tweed Valley Hospital site,” Mr Provest said.

“The response so far has been overwhelming and highlights the strong community interest in this significant new health facility for our region.

“Our bus tours were full within the first 48 hours! Given the interest there are no longer bus tour spots available, but community members can still register for site walk tours.”

“The community has played such an important part in the process of delivering this new hospital and we’re excited to welcome people along to the site this Saturday to celebrate our progress so far.”

The Tweed Valley Hospital Community Open Day will be held this Saturday, 18 June 2022, at 771 Cudgen Road, Cudgen. The gates will open from 9:45am, with site tours and bus tours starting from 10am and running through until 2pm.

There will be plenty of activities on offer throughout the day, with exhibition stands showcasing the construction of the hospital and information about our clinical services, as well as kids’ entertainment, food and drinks.

Northern NSW Local Health District Chief Executive Wayne Jones said the District is really excited about showcasing the new facility and what it will mean for the delivery of quality public healthcare to the local community.

“The hospital has been designed in partnership with clinicians, staff and the community to deliver the best clinical outcomes for our Tweed Valley,” Mr Jones said.   

“This new hospital will mean we can provide the community access to more health services closer to home, which will enable patients to remain near family, friends and existing support networks – saving 5000 people each year from having to travel for life-saving medical care.

“We are excited to see you there this Saturday 18 June. Come and make a day of it.”
