"The current Macksville Hospital is passed its use by date," Mrs Pavey said.

"The new $73 million investment will provide the people of the Nambucca Valley with a modern world class health facility and be an important part of the mid north coast local health district.

"Modern health facilities play an important role in attracting and retaining quality staff, and I will be working to ensure we have quality staff to ensure we have the right services provided locally, like maternity, community health, and emergency services."
