Cooma Hospital Emergency Department officially open

Friday 29 July 2022

Communities in Cooma and the wider Snowy Monaro region are set to benefit from enhanced emergency services with the official opening of a new emergency department (ED) at Cooma Hospital. 

The new and improved ED is a key milestone of the NSW Government’s $24 million Cooma Hospital redevelopment and will provide the hospital with additional capacity to meet the current and future health needs of the community. 

In addition to the expanded ED, the Cooma Hospital Redevelopment includes a new maternity department, a new ambulatory care centre and an expansion of the medical imaging department. 

Work is continuing to progress on the Cooma Hospital redevelopment with the refurbished maternity ward expected to be completed later this year. 

Other major projects being delivered across South-eastern NSW include: 

  • $260 million to develop the new Eurobodalla Regional Hospital 

  • $20 million for a new community health facility in Batemans Bay 

  • $165 million redevelopment of Goulburn Base Hospital – final works are expected to be completed mid-2023
