The Fairy Meadow community is a step closer to a new ambulance station, with the facility to be located on the University of Wollongong’s Innovation Campus.
Health Minister Brad Hazzard made the announcement this month.
“The new Fairy Meadow Ambulance Station is being delivered as part of the NSW Government’s $232 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration (RAIR) program and will support local paramedics to provide the best emergency medical care now and into the future,” Mr Hazzard said.
It will support the existing station in Wollongong, along with the recently announced station in Warilla.
Construction of the ambulance station is expected to commence early next year and be complete by late 2023.
