Planning for hospital, community health and out-of-hospital services is also underway, with a clear focus on providing for the healthcare needs of the local community.
When the new Tweed Valley Hospital opens, hospital services currently provided at the existing Tweed Hospital will be transferred to the new Tweed Valley Hospital.
Planning is underway to determine the range of community health and other out-of-hospital services will continue to be delivered in Tweed Heads. A HealthOne model is one of the options being considered.
The Local Health District is working together with clinicians, operational staff and community members to ensure that they get the planning of these healthcare services right.
