The concept designs for the $100 million Stage 2 redevelopment of Manning Base Hospital have been released, showcasing the new and enhanced health facilities to be delivered for the Myall Lakes community.
The project builds on significant redevelopments already delivered at the hospital and includes construction of a new inpatient unit and a two-storey building to better connect existing services within the hospital campus.
The second stage of the redevelopment includes:
upgraded capacity for acute and inpatient beds to support contemporary models of care
relocation and expansion of inpatient resources, including pharmacy and pathology
improved drop-off and front of house areas to provide a clear entry to the hospital
an integrated back of house and upgrade of essential hospital infrastructure
reconfiguration and refurbishment of key areas.
The building separates the entry and public areas on level 1 from the clinical and patient only areas to provide high-quality patient care, improved access around the hospital and better connectivity of services.
The concept design builds on the master plan for Manning Base Hospital which was unveiled earlier this year and the community feedback received has been considered in the design.
The healthcare facility is being designed to create a welcoming and culturally respectful space for patients, their carers, staff and the local community. The hospital will feature new landscaped areas and gardens and spaces to reflect the diversity of the community.
As the project’s planning and design progresses, staff and community are being encouraged to provide feedback on the concept plan via information pop-ups, community and stakeholder presentations and the project website.
The Manning Base Hospital Redevelopment is being delivered by Health Infrastructure in partnership with Hunter New England Local Health District.
