Feedback sought on names at the Coolah MPS

The Coolah community is invited to participate in a naming process at the Coolah Multipurpose Service (MPS), which is currently undergoing a major redevelopment.

As part of the redevelopment project, additional residential aged care rooms are being built which will result in two new aged care wings.

To support the Western NSW Local Health District's philosophy of Living Well Together in an MPS, and in recognition that this is the home of the residents, the two new aged care wings will be named in consultation with the residents, staff and the Coolah community.

Ann Taylor, Health Service Manager at the Coolah MPS, said this is a great opportunity to be more involved in the redevelopment by participating in the naming of the new wings.

“We are holding consultation sessions in March, and I really encourage anyone to come along to see what the redevelopment involves and where it's up to, as well as cast a vote in the naming process," she said.

“It would be wonderful to have strong local input in naming these two new aged care wings, which will be a part of the MPS for many years to come."

A shortlist of proposed names has been identified, and further details will be provided at the following community meeting.

Date: Thursday, 9th March 2017

Time: 9.30-10.30am
