Health Infrastructure has lodged the State Significant Development (SSD) application for the $250 million Griffith Base Hospital Redevelopment, marking more than two years of detailed planning and extensive consultation with clinicians, operational staff, community members and local and state government agencies.
The new Griffith Base Hospital will provide the Griffith region with capacity for an expanded Emergency Department; significant increase in aged care and rehabilitation beds; operating theatres, surgical and medical inpatient units; as well as maternity, medical imaging and paediatrics; expanded outpatient services with more specialist clinics, renal and oncology services.
The Griffith Base Hospital Redevelopment is moving forward this year with the continuation of early and enabling works. These works are forecast for completion in early 2022 ahead of the start of main works.
The SSD application will be on public display with the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment on their major projects website at: planning portal.nsw.gov.au/major-projects. During the 28-day public exhibition period the community is encouraged to review the design and make submissions.
