Residents in the Griffith region are a step closer to benefiting from the $250 million Griffith Base Hospital Redevelopment with ADCO Constructions appointed principal contractor for the new Clinical Services Building.
The NSW Government is investing in the redevelopment of Griffith Base Hospital which will provide Griffith and surrounding communities with state-of-the art health facilities and enhanced health services closer to home.
The new Clinical Services Building will include:
- new emergency department
- increased aged care and rehabilitation beds
- new operating theatres
- surgical, and medical inpatient units including a mental health short stay unit
- maternity and paediatric services
- medical imaging
- outpatient care to include expanded renal and oncology services and more specialist clinics.
Early and enabling works have been completed over the past two years to ensure health services will continue without interruption during construction of the new clinical services building. This included construction of the 10-bed Paediatric Unit, oxygen tank upgrade works, a temporary car park, the opening of a new support services building for essential hospital services to manage cleaning, food and linen.
Construction of the new hospital is expected to start in the coming months and be completed in 2025, before services are transferred over and the new facility is operational.
