Construction works on the redevelopment of the Hay Health Service, being delivered as part of the NSW Government’s $304 million Multipurpose Service Program (MPS), have commenced.
Design, planning and consultation with staff, residents and the community has been underway since the project was announced in late 2019.
The construction contract for the Hay Health Service redevelopment was awarded to Barpa, a majority Indigenous-owned commercial construction company.
The expansion of the Health Service will provide improved facilities to support delivery of flexible and integrated healthcare to the community.
The project includes the extension of Residential Aged Care, new staff accommodation and upgrades to existing emergency facilities – providing capacity to meet the health needs of the Hay community now and into the future.
Once completed, the redevelopment will deliver:
- additional residential aged care bedrooms and a resident lounge;
- external landscaped area and outdoor socialisation space for residents;
- new emergency triage area, which will provide hospital nursing staff with a dedicated area to assess and prioritise patients for treatment;
- three new staff accommodation units to support the staffing and operations of the health service
- refurbished reception and administration areas to facilitate contemporary models of care and improve security and accessibility.
The project is scheduled for completion in late 2021.
Works will be staged to minimise disruptions to staff, visitors and patients and allow the Hay Health Service to remain operational throughout the construction period.
