With redevelopment complete in 2019, the Coolah Multipurpose Service (MPS) is a 26-bed facility and includes acute and residential aged care beds.

The redevelopment included the construction of 14 residential aged care bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, as well as new dining and activities areas and a new courtyard for the aged care residents. Upgrades to the acute care areas including patient care rooms and support areas, and a refurbishment to the GP clinic was also part of the project.

Coolah is situated on the picturesque Coolaburragundy River and nestled in a valley of the Liverpool Range. Its located 137 km north east of Dubbo. The town is surrounded by undulating hills and fertile river flats and is an attractive service town for the surrounding agricultural district. It is also the gateway to the magnificent Coolah Tops National Park, where bushwalking, mountain biking and camping are popular activities.

Coolah firmly stakes its claim as being the home of the original ‘Black Stump’.

A replica Black Stump and rest area has been established nine kilometres from Coolah to mark its historical location.
