New designs released for Bathurst Health Service Redevelopment

New concept designs of the Bathurst Health Service Redevelopment have been released providing the community with its first look at the new health facility.  

The latest design highlights the vision for the redevelopment, which will deliver enhanced and flexible care within a sustainable and contemporary health facility to support the wellbeing of patients, carers and staff now and into the future. 

The hospital’s design has been informed by valuable feedback from staff, clinicians, the Western NSW Local Health District, the Community Reference Group and local Aboriginal community members, along with input received from the master plan consultation.  

The Bathurst Health Service Redevelopment will provide a mix of new and refurbished areas at the Bathurst Base Hospital, including: 

  • an expanded emergency department and maternity unit 
  • a new mental health inpatient unit (Panorama Clinic) 
  • improvements to inpatient, outpatient and community health services and operating theatres 
  • a new integrated paediatrics zone.  

Cancer care service at the Daffodil Cottage will also be expanded as part of the redevelopment.  

The hospital redevelopment will be located on the existing site, retaining and maximising district views. The redevelopment aims to have light-filled spaces, outdoor green areas and direct access to recreational space from the main hospital corridor .   

Improved car parking for patients, staff and visitors, as well as pedestrian and traffic access on the campus are also being investigated as part of the planning process.  

Construction of the redevelopment is expected to start in 2025. Work to build the expanded health facility will be carefully staged to ensure clinical services remain operational during construction.
