Designs for $438 million Shoalhaven Hospital unveiled

Monday 4 April 2022

New artist impressions for the $438 million Shoalhaven Hospital Redevelopment have been unveiled, showcasing the vision and design for the state-of-the-art health facility.  

The expansion of Shoalhaven Hospital will transform healthcare services for the Shoalhaven community and improve health outcomes. 

A new acute services building connecting to the existing hospital, rooftop helipad and refurbishment of existing hospital buildings are among the highlights of the redevelopment.    

The redevelopment is also improving access to the hospital with alternate entry and drop off areas on Shoalhaven Street and North Street. 

The southern end of Nowra Park will be retained as greenspace for the local community to enjoy. Landscaped areas will also be established on the hospital’s ground to create a welcoming space and enhanced experience for patients, staff and visitors. 

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, and there will also be greater access to more specialised staff, equipment and technology.  

The Shoalhaven District Memorial Hospital will complement other health projects for the Illawarra Shoalhaven community, including $700 million for the new Shellharbour Hospital, and recently completed projects including $11.8 million for the new Shoalhaven Hospital multistorey car park, $37.1 million towards the Bulli Hospital, and the Dapto and Ulladulla HealthOne projects, delivered as part of the $100 million HealthOne program.
