Progress to a single level 4 hospital is to have a single Emergency and Close Observation Unit

“The Mission of ONE - One New Eurobodalla hospital group is to promote the development of a single new health facility for the citizens of the Eurobodalla", says Michael Holland of ONE- One New Eurobodalla hospital Dr Holland said "By their division of resources, Eurobodalla health services are disadvantaged relative to our nearest Regional and Base hospitals. "Uniting residents from north of Batemans Bay to south of Narooma, we support the concept of equitable access to improved Emergency,Critical Care,Surgical and Obstetric services. "Increasing service capability and role delineation of a single new hospital will result in the attraction, maintenance and sustainability of general practitioners, specialist medical services, nursing and allied health staff. "One New Eurobodalla hospital will reduce the outflow of patients to services remote from their families. "ONE supports the improvement in Emergency, Critical Care and Perioperative services immediately and during the transition to a single new hospital.” Dr Holland said "Through its petition and lobbying, the group has achieved a site of a new hospital, a commencement date for work on a new hospital and repeated commitment to level 4 services. "However, it was never established as One New Eurobodalla hospital with TOEDs (two old emergency departments) or NCOU (no Close Observation Unit). "The way to progress to a single level 4 hospital on completion of building is to have a single Emergency and Close Observation Unit for transition to level 4 services on opening the One New Eurobodalla hospital. "This experience has been demonstrated elsewhere with dysfunctional results. I look forward to information concerning the planning of the decision and the implementation of action from the SNSWLHD."
