Superclinic takes shape
COFFS Harbour's march to become a major regional health centre continues at full speed with work now under way on the first stages of the city's new GP Superclinic.
To be operated by Bawrunga Medical Services, it will soon start taking shape on a site being developed on Stadium Drive.
The owner of the site, Ian Ovens, said sewerage, water and power were now connected and access would soon be provided.
Mr Ovens said the way would then be clear for the main construction works to begin, with the construction tender process nearing completion.
"It's great to see Federal Government support for this important health facility that will offer bulk-billed medical services to the local community," Mr Ovens said.
"As demonstrated in other regions, the Super Clinic will help take pressureClinic off the already over-stretched Coffs Health Campus.
"It's also good to see another project that establishes Coffs Harbour as major NSW regional centre."
The Super Clinic is due to open late next year and will provide innovative health care services with a focus on preventative health.
Super Clinic patients will be offered a one-stop-shop health service from a team of professionals to match their individual health needs.
These teams will be led by a General Practitioner and will comprise health coaches and a range of allied health workers, working in partnership with patients to reach their health and wellness goals.
