The Eurobodalla community is a step closer to expanded and enhanced healthcare services with early works now underway at the site of the new Eurobodalla Regional Hospital.
The commencement of work marks a significant milestone in the planning for the new hospital, which will provide more health services than are currently available at both the Moruya and Batemans Bay hospitals combined.
The important first step in early works construction includes Aboriginal archaeological work which will commence on site in coming weeks.
The local Aboriginal community has been central to helping shape the new health facility, and archeologists will be working closely with them to help identify significant Aboriginal objects or artefacts before construction commences.
Construction of a new roundabout on the Princes Highway will also start in the coming months, which will provide access to the hospital site during construction and become the main entrance to the hospital when it opens.
The new Eurobodalla Regional Hospital will support core clinical services to be delivered at a role delineation Level 4, and has been informed by extensive consultation with clinicians, operational staff, community members, and local and state government agencies.
Feedback from the local community has shaped key features of the hospital and the community is encouraged to view the latest plans and provide feedback as we move forward with this exciting project.
