CHARLTON Hospital is on the road to recovery.
The old site has been entirely demolished while construction works for the new hospital are on track to be complete by the end of 2014.
State minister for health David Davis visited the site yesterday and said the $22.7 million redevelopment was on schedule.
The new hospital will include two acute beds and 13 residential aged care beds, an urgent care service, a range of primary and allied health services, GP consulting and treatment rooms, a co-located ambulance station and a helipad.
“I’m sure the new health services building will play a role at the heart of health services in this area and will serve the community for many years," Mr Davis said.
