Urgent Care Centre opens at Cobram

The new NCN Health Cobram Urgent Care Centre officially opened on Wednesday March 27.

The new facility is part of a redevelopment at NCN Health Cobram that includes new urgent care facilities, increased floor space and improved staff and community safety with a separate entry into urgent care, new ambulance bay and two waiting areas.

Access to urgent care is through the new urgent care entrance at the front of the health service off Broadway street, urgent care parking is off Broadway street in the main car park.

Access to x-ray and ultrasound is through the main reception entrance. Parking for x-ray and ultrasound is in front of Irvin House on O’Dwyer street.

NCN Health Interim CEO Justin Sullivan said while the new Urgent Care Centre is now open, there is still more work to go on the project with construction works ongoing both inside and outside the health service.

“The opening of the Urgent Care Centre marks the end of stage one of three renovation stages taking place at Cobram Campus. Stage two will start after the Easter long weekend.

“Stage two renovation includes the demolition of the old ambulance entrance, refurbishment of the old urgent care to create a new ultrasound room, office and toilets. The old acute ward reception will be remodeled and there will be installation of a new fire wall.”

Mr. Sullivan said during stage two of the renovations, internal and external access will be impacted.

“Access to the main entrance and staff and visitor car parking will change in preparation for stage two internal renovations.

“There will be no parking for staff or visitors in the front main car park off Broadway street, this area will be partly used for Urgent Care Centre parking and the rest will be fenced off and used by Crowe Construction while they manage stage two of renovations.

“Access to the main entrance will be via the footpath on the O’Dwyer street side of the health service, you will enter this footpath near the front of Irvin House residential aged care.”

Stage two of renovations is expected to take 6 months. There will be temporary signage put in place to direct the flow of road and foot traffic.
