New and improved departments unveiled at Dubbo Hospital

11 March 2020

New and improved emergency and medical imaging departments at the upgraded Dubbo Hospital have been unveiled.

Built as part of the new three-storey clinical building at the hospital, the two essential services will be the first of several to open as part of Stages 3 and 4 of the $150 million redevelopment

The new facilities will open to patients in late March and will form part of a building which, when complete, will include:
  • An emergency department and short stay unit
  • A medical imaging department
  • A critical care floor comprising of a coronary care/stroke unit, intensive care unit and cardiac catheter laboratory
  • An ambulatory care unit; and
  • A main entry and drop off zone
The transformation of Dubbo Hospital sets a new benchmark for other major regional referral hospitals in NSW.

Stages 3 and 4 have also included a new surgical unit, which opened in March 2018, a new dialysis unit, which opened in December 2019, and additional car parking adjacent to the main entrance.

Construction of the Stage 4 building is happening in parallel with construction of the $35 million Western Cancer Centre, and is scheduled for completion in 2021.

Building hospitals and healthcare facilities is a complex operation - find out more.
