Tweed Valley Hospital officially opens

The new $723.3 million Tweed Valley Hospital has officially opened, providing a major boost in healthcare for the Northern NSW region. 

Premier Chris Minns joined Minister for Regional Health Ryan Park, HI Acting Chief Executive Emma Skulander, outgoing HI Chief Executive Rebecca Wark, HI Executive Director Rural and Regional Amanda Bock and more in celebrating the official opening.

The hospital offers new services for around 5,000 patients annually, including interventional cardiology and radiotherapy, meaning local residents can now access these services locally without needing to travel outside the region. 

Activity at the hospital is expected to increase in the coming years, and the expanded inpatient, surgical and emergency department capacity has been designed to keep pace with the health needs of the growing community.  

The design and planning of the hospital involved over 400 staff from The Tweed Hospital and over 110 community members, including Aboriginal and South Sea Islander community members, who generously volunteered their time and expertise along the way. 

A new multi-level car park, which will provide over 1,000 free car parking spaces at the hospital campus. 

The new hospital precinct will be home to the Northern NSW Academic Health Alliance, an innovative collaboration between Bond University, Griffith University, Southern Cross University, TAFE NSW, and the Northern NSW Local Health District.  

The Alliance focuses on building a pipeline of skilled healthcare workers to improve health outcomes in Northern NSW, operating from a custom-built integrated clinical training, education, and research hub. 

The Tweed Valley Hospital Development was delivered by Health Infrastructure in partnership with Northern NSW Local Health District with Lendlease the principal contractor of the main hospital building. ADCO Constructions built the multistorey car park, as well as the Health Hub and Learning Development and Research buildings.
