Topping out marks a major milestone in the delivery of this important health facility for the Central Coast Community.
Premier, Gladys Berejiklian, Health Minister Brad Hazzard, Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Adam Crouch and Member of the Legislative Council Taylor Martin joined RCC, Health Infrastructure, the Central Coast Local Health District to site to mark structural completion of the new six-storey building.
Impacts Beyond State-Of-The-Art Health Facilities
At such a key time during delivery, it was also a chance for us to reflect on the positive impact our project is having on the local workforce and economy.
To date, the project has created more than 800 jobs. With local workforce engagement already above 80% and 33 apprentices engaged thus far, the Wyong Hospital Redevelopment delivery is making a significant contribution to the local economy, now and into the future.
Thank you and congratulations to all our project partners; together we share a sense of pride in reaching this milestone on a facility which will service the local community for generations.
