First look at Bathurst Hospital master plan

The Bathurst Hospital Redevelopment master plan was released today, highlighting the vision for the redevelopment which will deliver enhanced and flexible healthcare for the Bathurst community now and into the future. 

A mix of new and refurbished areas will be delivered as part of the redevelopment, which will provide the community with expanded services including the emergency department and, maternity, and paediatric services, as well as improved paediatrics, mental health, inpatient and outpatient services. The Daffodil Cottage Cancer Care Service is also being expanded. 

Bathurst Hospital staff, clinicians and the Western NSW Local Health District are providing valuable input which is helping inform the planning and design.

Retaining and maximising views, addition of light-filled spaces as well as new outdoor spaces are proposed as part of the redevelopment to create a welcoming environment for patients, staff and visitors. 

As well as the unveiling of the master plan, a new MRI facility at Bathurst Health Service has been opened which will allow for faster diagnosis and treatment of patients in the local area.  

Construction is expected to commence in 2025 subject to planning approval, with the redevelopment expected to open to patients in 2027. Work to build the redevelopment will be carried out in stages to ensure clinical services remain operational during construction.
