In a major milestone for communities of Southern NSW, the first sod has been turned on the NSW Government’s $150 million Goulburn Hospital and Health Service redevelopment.
Health Infrastructure’s Chief Executive and project team joined hospital staff, Southern NSW Local Health District, Hansen Yuncken and political representatives to mark the start of main works construction.
Delivering enhanced health services, facilities and care to local communities of Southern NSW, the project will help integrate a range of health services in one easy-to-access location.
With a new four-storey Clinical Services Building as its central element, the redevelopment will include:
- new main entry and hospital reception
- expanded emergency department
- medical imaging department
- intensive care unit
- new operating theatres, with day surgery, recovery and pre-admission areas
- new medical, surgical, paediatric and geriatric inpatient wards with specific designated palliative care beds
- new maternity and birthing suite
- ambulatory paediatric and antenatal clinics
- sterilising services space, mortuary, patient flow,
- mental health triage and emergency call service.
Once Main Works are complete, further works will be undertaken including on-site car parking and additional ambulatory care services.
On track for completion in 2021, with operational commissioning to follow, the project will deliver a major boost to Southern NSW health services; ensuring high-quality, contemporary and accessible care closer to home.
