The NSW Government’s $80 million commitment to redevelop the Temora Hospital has taken a key step forward with the appointment of the project team to oversee the redevelopment.
The NSW Government is committed to delivering enhanced health services closer to home and future-proofing care for the Riverina community.
An experienced team of project managers, architects and cost managers who have worked on a range of health infrastructure projects in both metro and regional areas have been engaged to progress master planning for the Temora Hospital redevelopment.
The appointment of the project team is a key milestone in the advancement of healthcare for the region and will ensure the delivery of the best possible hospital to support the health needs of the Temora community now and into the future.
The project team includes:
- Capital Insight as the Project Managers
- HDR as the Architect
The immediate focus for the redevelopment team includes commencing the master planning for the hospital.
Consultation with key stakeholders including clinicians, staff, patients and the local community will take place to inform the project's planning and design.
The full range of services and infrastructure to be delivered as part of the redevelopment will be identified through the planning phase.
The Temora Health Service redevelopment is part of the NSW Government’s record $11.9 billion investment in health infrastructure over four years to 2025-26, with nearly a third of the capital allocation in this financial year going towards regional and rural health facilities.
Along with Temora, the NSW Government is investing in major health infrastructure projects in the Murrumbidgee Local Health District including the:
- $250 million redevelopment of Griffith Base Hospital;
- $431 million completed redevelopment of Wagga Wagga Base Hospital;
- $30 million multi-storey car park at the Wagga Wagga hospital site;
- $25 million to redevelop Finley Health Service;
- $50 million to redevelop Tumut Hospital; and
- New Tumut Ambulance Station, as part of the $232 million Rural Ambulance Infrastructure Reconfiguration program.
Since 2011, the government has delivered more than 180 health capital works projects across NSW, with more than 130 projects currently underway – of those, more than 90 are in rural and regional areas.
