Nanango Hospital upgrade improves outdoor area for patients

UPGRADES to Nanango Hospital have improved the outdoor area for patients and visitors.

More than $380,000 of construction works have been carried out including upgrades to the outdoor seating area for patients, the replacement of an external covered walkway and resealing of the car park.

Member for Nanango Deb Frecklington said it was now easier for families to move between buildings.

"The new concrete-based walkway, which links the main hospital building to the administration building, replaced a disability access ramp and will make it easier for people to use," Mrs Frecklington said.

"New lighting and stormwater drainage was installed along the walkway and part of the walkway has been enclosed along a section which is susceptible to strong westerly winds.

"Substantial landscaping works are due for completion at the end of August to improve the outdoor amenities for patients with a refurbished pergola and a new three-tier retaining wall."

Minister for Housing and Public Works Tim Mander said the work delivered on the Queensland Government's election promise to provide better infrastructure and planning.

"These works will provide easier access to the hospital and a more pleasant environment for patients and staff," Mr Mander said.
