The Emergency Department (ED) of the new Wagga Wagga Rural Referral Hospital (WWRRH) will officially open on Monday 18 January.

Director of Nursing & Midwifery Grant Carey-Ide said people wanting to access the ED after 7am on Monday will need to enter the new hospital.

“People can either drive into the forecourt of the new hospital and drop off their loved ones or walk straight into the new ED of the new hospital,” Mr Carey-Ide said.

“To help make it easier for everyone we will be unveiling massive new signs showing the community where to access the ED.”
