The Diane Smith (Townsend) Memorial Eugowra Medical Centre was officially opening on Saturday, 18 November 2023 by the Deputy Mayor Jamie Jones, Eugowra Medical Centre chair Ray Augustin and MP Andrew Gee.

The original Eugowra Medical Centre was opened in 1965 and in the decades since has been improved twice, and the groundwork for the most recent renovations began back in 2017.

The project was jointly funded by The Federal Government’s Building Better Regions Fund $124,000, along with $366,000 from Cabonne Council and a $30,000 contribution from the Eugowra Medical Centre Committee.

The project included the redevelopment of the existing medical centre building to create two residential units, as well as a renewed and modern medical centre.

Deputy Mayor Jamie Jones said,

“This facility is extremely important to the community here and plays an important role in the overall recovery of the community by restoring necessary access to healthcare and mental health services. Looking towards the future, this little town is beginning to thrive again, and this opening of the Eugowra Medical Centre today provides another positive milestone for the community.”
