Staff and community input shapes the new Eurobodalla Regional Hospital

Over 120 community members, staff and residents have attended information sessions, pop-up stalls and online forums throughout February and March for the new Eurobodalla Regional Hospital.  
The information sessions provided a great opportunity to hear from community, residents, staff and Aboriginal elders and community, and gather their feedback as we progress the planning phase of the project.

On Friday 18 March 2022, the project team and representatives from Health Infrastructure joined the Minister for Health and Minister for Regional Health at the RSL Hall in Moruya to talk about the planning and design process, masterplan considerations and answer questions directly from the community.

The feedback received is being used to inform: 

  • The delivery of a welcoming and culturally safe environment for everyone who visit the new hospital.  
  • Site information and siting of key infrastructure, such as the helipad and the secondary access road. 
  • Staff attraction and retention. 
  • Ongoing trade and employment opportunities. 
  • Future expansion opportunities on the new hospital site, including staff and carers accommodation, preventative health, and education facilities. 

The project team is continuing to refine the designs to ensure the project delivers new spaces, improved room layouts and amenities, focused on strengthening and expanding models of care in preparation for a smooth transition to the new level four facility. 

The team will continue working with neighbouring properties around construction impacts and mitigation measures for the new helipad service.
