Premier tours new hospital site


On Friday 14 April, Premier Chris Minns toured the site of the new $260 million Eurobodalla Regional Hospital to see first-hand the progress on the site.

The Premier was joined by members of the local Aboriginal community and other dignitaries including Member for Bega, Dr Michael Holland, to learn about the project and archaeological work underway on site.

The archaeological process seeks to identify any Aboriginal objects or artefacts, ahead of construction commencing.

The new hospital is also a pilot project for the NSW Government Architect’s Connecting with Country Framework, incorporating ongoing contribution by the local Aboriginal community to the design of the hospital which reflects traditional practices including birthing on country.  

The development includes a new emergency department, intensive care unit, operating theatres, paediatric and maternity beds and mental health facilities providing local residents with access to expanded health services closer to home.

Designed with the latest models of care, the working environment will help attract clinicians, nurses and hospital staff to the region and meet the growing needs of an ageing population and the Eurobodalla’s vulnerable residents.

The Eurobodalla Regional Hospital will include:

  • Emergency Department
  • Eight-bed Intensive Care / Close Observation Unit
  • Increased capacity for chemotherapy and increased access to renal dialysis
  • Surgical and operating theatres and a day stay surgical unit
  • Expanded medical imaging department, including MRI service
  • Ambulatory care for community and outpatient services
  • Paediatric and maternity beds, and a special care nursery
  • Mental health beds for short term admission
  • Enhanced education and training facilities, including a simulation lab.

Construction of the new Eurobodalla Regional Hospital is due for completion in 2025.
