The existing Wentworth Hospital site is set to be transformed as part of the $30 million Wentworth Health Service redevelopment to enhance health services and facilities for residents of the state’s south-western region.
This location, at the current hospital site overlooks the Darling River and will provide all inpatient bedrooms with a direct view of the Darling River, offering a therapeutic environment for patients as they receive treatment and care, as well as their families.
The preferred location for the redevelopment was confirmed following a comprehensive review of more than 10 potential sites by Health Infrastructure and the Far West Local Health District, and in consultation with hospital staff, local council and the local community. A range of criteria was considered in determining the hospital site including zoning, size, and location.
The current hospital is located on a large site and will enable the existing hospital and services to remain operational while works to build the new facility are completed.
The site also offers opportunities for future expansion and options to retain the existing staff accommodation buildings, as well as on-site parking for patients, visitors and staff.
The project team is hosting a series of stakeholder and community information sessions, providing the Wentworth community with the opportunity to share their feedback and ask questions to ensure their needs are met.
The NSW Government is investing $30 million to redevelop the Wentworth Health Service. The full range of services to be delivered as part of the Wentworth Health Service redevelopment will be identified as part of the community consultation process.
