New day surgery unit opens at Lismore Base Hospital
A NEW day surgery facility has been officially opened at Lismore Base Hospital.
The upgrade has seen the return of ophthalmology (eye) services to Lismore Base, which have previously only been available at St Vincents.
The area includes 13 new recovery chairs and an expansion of day surgery beds from 6-10.
Lismore MP Thomas George said the new facility would help meet the increasing demand for day surgery procedures and cut waiting times at the hospital.
