The design for the $50 million Glen Innes Hospital redevelopment has been unveiled, providing the community with their first look at the new healthcare facility.
The NSW Government is investing in a major state-of-the-art redevelopment of Glen Innes District Hospital to modernise health services and facilities for patients, staff and the community.
The redevelopment will be built on the corner of Ferguson and Macquarie Streets and provide a purpose-built facility offering flexible clinical services and contemporary models of care including emergency, medical imaging, maternity, birthing, community health, inpatient unit, as well as administration areas for staff.
The Glen Innes community has helped shape the planning and design the $50 million health facility, including the hospital’s new main entry and the improved access from Ferguson Street which were key issues raised by the community.
The redevelopment also includes improved on-site parking and a drop-off-zone as well as landscaped areas for patients, visitors and staff.
The concept design also highlights the connection between the new hospital and the existing building which will house pathology laboratory and collection, as well as the kitchen and staff support areas.
The redevelopment is part of the NSW Government’s record $11.9 billion investment in health infrastructure over four years to 2025-26, with nearly a third of the capital allocation in this financial year going towards regional and rural health facilities.
Earlier this year the NSW Government announced an additional $30 million funding boost for Glen Innes Hospital redevelopment – bringing the total budget to $50 million.
Since 2011, the NSW Government has delivered more than 180 health capital works projects across NSW, with more than 130 projects currently underway – of those, more than 90 are in rural and regional areas.
