Health Minister Jillian Skinner said the start of work at Kogarah marks a milestone in the NSW Government’s $150 million commitment to build 5 new super ambulance stations in greater metropolitan Sydney.
“The new super station at Kogarah will be a game-changer for NSW Ambulance. It is anticipated to house up to 20 ambulances – much more than current stations hold,” Mrs Skinner said.
“The super station has been designed to ensure paramedics are in the right place to get to patients as quickly as possible.
The super station forms part of the Sydney Ambulance Metropolitan Infrastructure Strategy, which was developed to build ambulance stations of the future.
The super station will better align paramedics and vehicles to meet patient activity and demand.
Major construction is planned for more super stations in Bankstown, Blacktown, Liverpool and Penrith.
