The Sutherland Shire now has a new $7 million MRI facility close to home, as part of the NSW Liberal and National Government’s $88.5 million boost to Sutherland Hospital’s new Operating Theatre Complex.
This means that for the first time in the history of Sutherland Hospital patients can access an MRI on site providing physicians and patients with immediate access to an additional state-of-the-art diagnostic tool.
It will enhance patients’ access to first-class, quality healthcare without the need to travel out of the Shire.
The NSW Government responded to local residents who had campaigned to secure an MRI service for Sutherland Hospital.
The launch of the MRI service is in addition to the $62.9 million redevelopment of Sutherland Hospital, part of the NSW Government’s $160 million investment in health services for the Sutherland community.
