The Murrurundi Wilson Memorial Hospital redevelopment reached an important milestone this week with the pouring of concrete for the new hospital foundations.
Approximately 160 cubic metres of concrete was poured over three consecutive days to form the concrete slab of the new hospital building, following extensive excavation works and in-ground services for the new hospital building.
The final works including demolition of the existing hospital building, construction of new staff accommodation, and landscaping works, which will commence in 2021. The overall redevelopment project is forecast to be complete in late 2021.
Once construction of the new Murrurundi Hospital building is complete, the local community will be invited for a walkthrough before all health services move over from the existing hospital.
The project team is working closely with the Community Reference Group on the Arts and Heritage program for the new building and campus.
The Murrurundi Hospital Redevelopment is being delivered as part of the NSW Government’s $304 million Multipurpose Service program for facilities across rural and remote NSW.
Construction on the new hospital is forecast to be complete in early 2021, before services are transferred and the new hospital is operational.
