Construction on a series of expansions is now underway at Bulli Hospital as part of the New Shellharbour Hospital and Integrated Services Project.
Minister for Health and Minister for Regional Health Ryan Park said the refurbishment works will enable patients to be treated in a first-class facility, including a new outpatient rehabilitation gym and two new inpatient wards.
The works will further improve and expand rehabilitation and geriatric services at Bulli, allowing closure of the aging facility at Port Kembla Hospital and treating patients in modern and fit-for-purpose spaces.
“These refurbishment works will enable patients to be treated in a first-class facility, with a modern rehabilitation gym, as well as spacious rooms with lots of light and beautiful views up to the escarpment.
“Bulli Hospital has always been and continues to be an important part of the Illawarra Shoalhaven’s network of services. These refurbishments will cement its place as a leading facility in rehabilitation and aged care services,” Mr Park said.
Refurbishments at Bulli Hospital are on track to be completed later this year.
The New Shellharbour Hospital and Integration Services Project will also deliver a new hospital in Shellharbour, upgrades to Wollongong Hospital and a new community health centre, built on a portion of the Port Kembla Hospital campus.
“These works will further strengthen the services offered by the Local Health District and ensure patients in our community receive their treatment in fit-for-purpose clinical spaces,” Mr Park said.
