In November 2017, the beginning of operations at the brand new Harden NSW Ambulance Station was announced.
The new Harden ambulance station has been delivered as part of the NSW Government’s $122 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration program.
The modern facility will enable NSW Ambulance to meet the mobile emergency care needs of Harden and surrounding communities for years to come.
Following the completion of construction, the new station underwent a carefully planned fit-out and commissioning process which has ensured the ongoing delivery of high quality mobile emergency care during the transition.
NSW Ambulance Southern Zone Manager Mark Gibbs said with the facility designed with input from local paramedics, the station would better support the needs of frontline staff.
“Local staff are settling in well to the new Harden station, and are excited to have a new purpose built facility to support them in delivering expert clinical care to patients throughout Harden and surrounding communities,” Mr Gibbs said.
Located on the corner of Lucan and Scott Streets, Harden’s new ambulance station includes:
• Parking bays for up to three ambulance vehicles to ensure our infrastructure is ready to meet projected patient demand increases over the next decade and beyond
• Administration, office area and amenities
• On site staff parking
• A logistics and storage area
• An external vehicle wash bay
NSW Ambulance is improving infrastructure across regional and rural areas to ensure we continue to enhance the high quality emergency medical care delivered to your community now and into the future.
The NSW Government’s $122 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration (RAIR) program currently includes 22 locations across the state that will benefit from an upgraded, rebuilt or entirely new ambulance station.
We receive a Triple Zero (000) call every 28 seconds on average, with demand on resources expected to change as our population shifts and ages. In response we are embarking on the biggest regional and rural transformation of infrastructure and service delivery models in our history.
Designed with input from local NSW Ambulance staff, the purpose-built infrastructure will deliver a better working environment for paramedics that is tailored to the needs of your community. The stations will include accompanying administration support as well as educational, fleet and relief accommodation where needed.
We are enabling our paramedics to meet the mobile emergency care needs of rural and regional communities for years to come.
