Extensive consultation with clinicians, staff, patients, consumers and the local community has helped shape the planning for the state-of-the-art redevelopment, where work is expected to start next year.
The $438 million Shoalhaven Hospital redevelopment will provide new facilities including cardiology, mental health and aged care wards, more operating theatres and a new emergency department. There will also be greater access to more specialised staff, equipment and technology as well a new rooftop helipad.
The Shoalhaven Hospital redevelopment is part of the NSW Government’s record $11.9 billion investment in health infrastructure over four years to 2025-26, with nearly a third of the capital allocation in this financial year going towards regional and rural health facilities.
It will complement other health projects for the Illawarra Shoalhaven community, including more than $700 million for the new Shellharbour Hospital and integrated services, and recently completed projects including the $11.8 million for the new Shoalhaven Hospital multi-storey car park, and the Dapto and Ulladulla HealthOne projects, delivered as part of the $100 million HealthOne program.
