MEMBER for Murray Helen Dalton says she will continue to push for Leeton's hospital to be upgraded and better equipped.
Mrs Dalton met with the Leeton branch of the NSW Nurses and Midwives' Association last week, with several issues on the agenda.
These included better security for staff, as well as working conditions, but also the promised upgrade of certain areas of the hospital.
"The government committed more than $2 million to this upgrade over 18 months ago, but there has been no work done to my knowledge," Mrs Dalton said.
"Our hospital workers and the community deserve this.
"The Leeton hospital is such a crucial part of the town here.
"We need to hold them (the government) to account on this."
Mrs Dalton is also calling for a social worker and a mental health "safe spot" at the hospital.
She said the emergency department needed to have two people present at all times.
"Not just one ... I think there's a break there of six hours where there's only one person there and that's not good enough," Mrs Dalton said.
"It doesn't pass the pub test.
"The hospital, we need a needs-based analysis of what this hospital needs and then be able to provide those services."

When the $2.5 million dollar upgrade was announced, the government stated the money would be used to upgrade and expand the emergency department, maternity, pharmacy space, ambulatory care and ward refurbishments.
Mrs Dalton said she would also be pushing for the hospital to have a permanent doctor on staff and for the operating theatre to again be put to use.
"We can't let our hospital services be downgraded in towns such as Leeton," she said.
