Designs for the new $260 million state-of-the-art Eurobodalla Regional Hospital have been unveiled, showcasing a significantly expanded health service and contemporary facility for the Eurobodalla Shire.
The new hospital will increase bed capacity and expand health services providing more services than are currently available at the Moruya and Batemans Bay hospitals combined.
The modern, purpose-built health facility is designed to grow with the community and will be built to accommodate a Level 4 health facility featuring:
increased capacity for chemotherapy and increased access to renal dialysis
surgical and operating theatres and a day stay surgical unit
expanded medical imaging department, including MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) service
ambulatory care for community and outpatient services
paediatric and inpatient maternity beds and services
Ongoing engagement with clinicians, staff and the local community is shaping and informing the planning and design for the new hospital which will deliver high quality, modern and accessible health care services.
The hospital’s design is being guided by local Aboriginal knowledge to build connections with Country, including the use of Dhurga language to support wayfinding around the hospital campus and the inclusion of a Meeting Place.
Early works on the new Eurobodalla Regional Hospital are expected to start in late 2022 with main works construction scheduled to start in 2023. The hospital is expected to open to patients in 2025.
