THE doctors from Jindabyne Medical Centre will move early to the new Snowy River GP Super Clinic (SRGPSC) next weekend and re-open in their new location on Monday, May 19.
The move is earlier than expected and is the result of substantial efforts by the construction team and good weather during the construction period. The doctors will be the first to move into the new Clinic with other allied health professionals all due to open their doors before the June long weekend.
"Whilst the external surrounds of the building are not quite finished, it will be great to get the doctors in and settled before the start of winter, if possible," Snowy River Shire Council General Manager Joe Vescio said.
"There is still some landscaping, and tidying up to do but inside is ready to go and we hope to have a seamless operation running by the busy winter school holidays."
"We are really pleased with construction progress and welcome the team from Jindabyne Medical Centre."
The Nuggets Crossing Family Practice will be closed to the public from 5pm Thursday, May 15 until 10am, Monday, 19 May.
