South East Regional Hospital Community Carers Accommodation receives $300,000

Member for Bega and Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance has announced a further $300,000 towards Stage 2 of the Community Carers Accommodation at South East Regional Hospital. Mr Constance said this $300,000 boost for the Stage 2 development phase of the Carers Accommodation is something he has been passionate about securing and championing for since its inception. “This funding injection which will have a tremendous benefit to our entire region allows us to support local families when they need it the most. NSW Health Minister, Brad Hazzard has seen the benefit of this fantastic facility and I thank him for his commitment to the South East. Patients and families from Batemans Bay to the Victorian Border and across to the Monaro are set to benefit from this fantastic facility. “This money comes in addition to the $100,000 already provided by the NSW Government in 2016 towards Stage 1 development. “With South East Regional Hospital now operational, it is more important than ever that the carers accommodation is completed. “Given the large catchment area being serviced by the SERH and the distances travelled by patients and their families, having access to affordable onsite accommodation will be beneficial during those times. “Carers accommodation such as this can provide a more positive experience for families of sick loved ones. To have somewhere close, comfortable and most importantly safe when away from home is essential. “To Lynne and the entire CCASE committee, our community and all those within it, along with our entire region who are supporting this project, congratulations to you all on this next phase.” Media Release
