Talks held on hospital's future

TALKS have been held among some of the region’s leading health professionals on offering services at the now closed Lismore Private Hospital.

It is understood the experts from a number of health-related fields met with APT, the building’s owner, in Lismore on Wednesday.

While no firm decisions have yet been made, APT chief executive Darren Olney-Fraser said the discussions had been productive.

He said a number of options had been discussed, including various groups using parts of the purpose-built $10 million hospital.

“We want to work closely with local health professions to get it open as soon as possible,” he said.

The 66-bed private hospital, operated by Ferguson Owen Health, went into receivership in February owing more than $2 million.
