Griffith Base Hospital Redevelopment creates regional construction jobs

The $250 million Griffith Base Hospital Redevelopment is taking shape with construction of the new three-storey Clinical Services Building underway, and an estimated 130 workers working on site each day.

New timelapse shows the significant progress of the project, including the recently completed external façade. 
The redevelopment is estimated to support approximately 450 direct jobs with the potential for supporting hundreds of indirect jobs over the life of the project.

Following the recent completion of the external façade, work is now focusing on the internal fit out. The installation of furniture, fixtures, and major medical equipment as well as building commissioning will then follow.
When completed the new hospital building will include:
  • an enhanced emergency department with more treatment spaces
  • two new operating theatres, and a procedure room
  • surgical, and medical inpatient units
  • maternity and paediatric inpatient units, including four new beds to support patients aged 16 years and over requiring short-term, mental health care
  • expanded medical imaging with CT and nuclear medicine service
  • three separate gym spaces for inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation
  • Hospital in the Home, renal dialysis and cancer care
  • separate Emergency Department and hospital reception entrance
  • new expanded and accessible car parking
  • cafe, Auxiliary kiosk, internal and external courtyards and natural light-filled spaces.
The hospital has been designed in close collaboration with staff and clinicians and will feature three palliative care rooms for patients and their loved ones. 

Construction of the new hospital is on track and expected to be completed in early 2025.
