Medical Centre building works on track for October completion

Work is expected to be completed within weeks, on the first stage of a redevelopment of the Mount Druitt Medical Centre in Beames Avenue.

Inspecting the progress of the building works – partly paid for by the Australian Government’s Primary Care Infrastructure Grant, Chifley Federal MP Ed Husic said the expanded practice will be of enormous benefit to local patients.

“The expansion of the Mt Druitt Medical Centre will benefit the Mt Druitt community through providing an additional four rooms for general practitioners, practice nurses and allied health professionals to deliver integrated and comprehensive primary care,” Mr Husic said.

“I want to congratulate Dr Lim and the Practice for their vision in helping patients to access a better quality health service through more doctors, specialised health professionals, extended opening hours and improved facilities.

“Providing improved health facilities in local neighbourhoods means residents can get access to quality care quicker – which is why this investment is so vital.

“This expansion will also provide extra space for the education and clinical placements of GP Registrars and medical students and for the provision of pathology collection services.”

Mt Druitt Medical Centre is the oldest continuing practice in Mt Druitt with its building close to 40 years old and when completed will be greatly modernised.

Mr Husic said the Gillard Government contributed $150,000 towards the expansion and modernisation of the practice.

“All in all, almost $450,000 has been provided to three practices in Mt Druitt and Rooty Hill to upgrade facilities meaning more doctors, more nurses, more health professionals and better care for patients,” Mr Husic said.
