Taree and the Manning Valley communities can take their first look at the $100 million Stage 2 redevelopment of Manning Base Hospital with the master plan unveiled today.
Stage 2 of the redevelopment will deliver upgraded inpatient beds, access to telehealth spaces and modern facilities to support best practice models of care, ensuring the health needs of the local community are met now and into the future.
Following the appointment of the project team last year, due diligence investigations, including environmental, building and other technical studies have been carried out.
Work on site is expected to start once project planning is complete and statutory planning approvals have been achieved.
The NSW Government has invested $140 million as part of Stages 1 and 2 of the redevelopment of Manning Base Hospital, which is being delivered in partnership with Health Infrastructure and Hunter New England Local Health District.
