Planning for the $25 million Finley Hospital redevelopment has taken a significant step forward with the appointment of the project team.
The NSW Government is investing $25 million towards the redevelopment to deliver upgraded health facilities and transform health outcomes and experiences for patients, their families, staff and the local community.
An experienced team of project managers and architects 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 Finley Health Service redevelopment, to ensure the best possible health care solutions are delivered for the Riverina community.
This appointment marks a key milestone in the advancement of healthcare for Finley and the wider region to ensure the best possible health facilities to support the local community’s health needs now and into the future.
The project team was appointed following a competitive tender process and includes:
- Capital Insight as the Project Managers
- HDR as the Architect
The immediate focus for the team is developing the master plan which will commence in the coming weeks.
Consultation with key stakeholders including medical 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 $25 million Finley 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 Finley, the NSW Government has invested 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;
$80 million Temora Health Service redevelopment;
$50 million Tumut Hospital redevelopment; 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.
