In November 2017, a new ambulance station was announced to be constructed at the Wyong Hospital campus at Hamlyn Terrace.
In addition to the existing Wyong ambulance station, a second $4.9 million ambulance station will be constructed in Wyong’s north as part of the Wyong Hospital campus.
The planning approvals process will start soon. This involves planning approval and tender for the construction of the new facility.
Consultation with local paramedics has provided key insights and is helping to develop this fit for purpose infrastructure for paramedics to serve their local community.
NSW Ambulance Deputy Director Operations Sean Kearns said the delivery of a second station at Wyong and a new facility at Toukley would deliver a better working environment for paramedics, tailored to the needs of local communities.
“These brand new, fit for purpose stations will better support the needs of our hardworking local paramedics in delivering high quality emergency medical care to local residents now and into the future,” Mr Kearns said.
The RAIR program currently includes 22 locations across the state that will benefit from an upgraded, rebuilt or entirely new ambulance station.
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.

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.
