The next phase of the $200 million Wyong Hospital Redevelopment
is a step closer, with the builder appointed and construction set to start in the coming months.
This next phase of the redevelopment will provide more new and significantly enhanced healthcare services to meet the growing needs of the Central Coast region.
It includes expansion of the Cancer Day Unit, offering specialist cancer ambulatory treatment services, including chemotherapy and specialist consultations. This will bring these services closer to home for patients in the northern Central Coast area who currently need to travel around 45 kilometres each way to Gosford Hospital to receive care.
A new Wyong Women’s Centre Clinic is also being built, enhancing antenatal and postnatal care at the hospital. Among the services is a new Early Pregnancy Assessment Service and a new Day Assessment Unit.
In a first for Wyong Hospital, dedicated spaces for an Aboriginal Health Unit and a Carer Support Unit are also being delivered.
The Aboriginal Health Unit will offer a range of services for the local Aboriginal community including GP and allied health clinics, antenatal, post-natal and baby health checks and immunisations.
The Carer Support Unit is designed to provide a supportive environment for carers, featuring a lounge, quiet room, and a meeting room for group activities.
The first phase of the $200 million Wyong Hospital Redevelopment was completed in 2021 and delivered modern clinical spaces including a new emergency department, intensive care unit and medical imaging department.
The second phase was completed in 2022, delivering more operating theatre capacity and an expanded medical day unit and transit lounge.
This third phase of the redevelopment includes:
- Expansion of the Cancer Day Unit
- New Women’s Health Clinic
- New Aboriginal Health Unit – Nunyara
- New Carer Support Unit
- New Medical Workspace
- Expanded NSW Pathology Lab.
Lipman has been appointed as the builder following a competitive tender process. Construction is expected to start in the coming months.
