First designs unveiled for new Wyong Palliative Care Unit

An artist’s impression of the new Palliative Care Unit at Wyong Hospital has been unveiled, providing the Central Coast community with its first look at the design, which will enhance palliative care services in the Central Coast.  

The new Palliative Care Unit is being delivered as part of the NSW Government’s $93 million allocated for capital investment in the World Class End of Life Care Program to redevelop and enhance palliative care units across the state.    

The design has been developed in consultation with healthcare professionals, carers, and the community, to ensure the best and most appropriate health outcome for the Central Coast community.  

The new unit will provide privacy and space for patients and families, including 12 palliative care bedrooms with ensuites, as well as communal areas, meeting spaces, and flexible outdoor areas.  

Following extensive site investigations across the Wyong Hospital campus, the facility will be located within an existing building at the eastern end of the campus. The existing space will be extensively remodelled, integrating the unit with the existing hospital to provide easy access to parking and other clinical services. 

The new unit will complement the Central Coast Local Health District’s existing palliative care services, including the palliative care unit at Gosford Hospital and in-home services to meet individual and family needs. 

Construction timeframes will be confirmed once a builder has been appointed. 

Several Palliative Care facilities are being redeveloped or refurbished as part of the World Class End of Life Care Program which includes new and expanded units at Westmead, Nepean, Wyong, Tamworth and Orange hospitals.
