Hos­pi­tal’s new face

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE newly ap­pointed di­rec­tor of nurs­ing of the Biggenden Multi Pur­pose Health Ser­vice, Heather MacKel­lar, is look­ing for­ward to liv­ing and work­ing in the area.

Af­ter aweek on the job, Mrs MacKel­lar said the com­plex was im­pres­sive.

“The orig­i­nal build­ing­was a beau­ti­ful old build­ing, but this is much more prac­ti­cal,” Mrs MacKel­lar said.

“I have been a nurse for more than 35 years, hav­ing un­der­taken gen­eral and mid­wifery train­ing in Mackay.

“I then went to work in small ru­ral hos­pi­tals around the state and had been at Moura Hos­pi­tal since 1999 be­fore com­ing to Biggenden.”

Mar­ried with two adult chil­dren, the MacKel­lars have owned a prop­erty in the Coringa area since 1986, which they had been man­ag­ing re­motely.
