In good news for communities of Western NSW, dialysis patients can now receive treatment in a new, expanded dialysis unit - part of the NSW Government’s $150 million Dubbo Hospital Redevelopment Stages 3 and 4.
The newly opened unit provides the extra space needed to deliver life-saving dialysis services to more patients from regional and remote areas of Western NSW.
Dialysis patients can spend up to 15 hours per week receiving treatment, and the bright and modern facility at Dubbo Hospital will significantly improve their experience with:
- 14 dialysis chairs
- Two training rooms
- Two consultation rooms
- An expansion zone to allow for four more dialysis chairs.
The unit’s opening is a significant milestone for Dubbo Hospital which is undergoing a major transformation to provide the highest quality healthcare for decades to come.

Now that dialysis patients and staff have moved into the new facility, work can start on the $35 million Western Cancer Centre, to be constructed on the location of the old dialysis unit and old operating theatres on the western side of the campus.
