$2.2m health investment for Birdwood

Published on 02 December 2022

It was a pleasure to attend the official opening of Birdwood’s first ever purpose-built SA Ambulance Station in November – a $2.2 million investment in our region’s health by the former Liberal Government, and one which I know will make a positive difference for our community. 

Not only is this investment about supporting our local community when they need urgent care, but it is about ensuring that our hardworking and dedicated ambulance crews have the first-class facility that supports them in their lifesaving work. 

That is exactly what this investment is all about. 

It is a bigger station with capacity to accommodate more than 50 volunteer ambulance staff and three vehicles. 

It has sleeping spaces and training spaces, and the volunteers and our local community could not be more excited. 

We know through many of the volunteer ambulance paramedics in our community that demand in the Adelaide Hills for this emergency service has absolutely soared, not only over the last couple of years with COVID, but over the last two decades. 

I genuinely believe that this investment is a positive step forward towards alleviating some of the ramping pressure that we are seeing in metropolitan Adelaide.
