The Griffith Base Hospital redevelopment has reached a significant milestone with the construction of the new three-storey clinical services building reaching its highest point.
The new clinical services building will serve as the centrepiece of the hospital's redevelopment, making it one of the largest infrastructure projects in the region.
Upon completion, the purpose-built clinical services building will consolidate all major health services under one roof, supporting contemporary models of care and improving patient experiences.
The Griffith Base Hospital redevelopment has been designed in close collaboration with staff and clinicians and will include:
- an enhanced emergency department with more treatment spaces
- separate emergency department and hospital reception entrances
- more overnight and day-only beds to address future demand for health services, with a significant boost in aged care and rehabilitation beds
- two new operating theatres and a procedure room
- new surgical and medical inpatient units
- new maternity and paediatric inpatient units, including four new beds to support patients aged 16 years and over requiring short-term mental health care
- expanded medical imaging with new CT and nuclear medicine service
- refurbished community health facilities
- expanded outpatient services with more specialist clinic rooms and renal and oncology chairs
- new car parking with accessible spaces.
The new hospital continues to provide a real boost to the local economy, supporting hundreds of jobs. Over 100 people are on site each day to support construction, including a diverse range of roles such as project engineers, administrators, and design managers.
With the structural works completed, the project team will now focus on the internal fit-out, services installation, and exterior works.
Health services will continue to operate during construction. The new hospital is on track for completion in 2025.
