Main works contract awarded for new Eurobodalla Regional Hospital

Thursday 20 June 2024


The new $330 million Eurobodalla Regional Hospital is on track to deliver first-class health services and hundreds of local jobs with the appointment of the main works contractor.

Multiplex Constructions has been awarded the main works contract to deliver the new Eurobodalla Regional Hospital, which will provide the community with a range of expanded and contemporary health services close to home.

Clinicians, staff and the community have been engaged in the planning and design process, which is expected to support more than 600 direct jobs during construction and hundreds of indirect jobs over the life of the project.

Work to prepare the site will include the installation of site sheds, site setup and establishment, construction of erosion and sediment basins, and an ancillary road to facilitate construction access.

The new $330 million Eurobodalla Regional Hospital includes:

  • An emergency department with a larger capacity than the current combined emergency services of Moruya and Batemans Bay hospitals.
  • An eight bed Intensive Care Unit (ICU) / Close Observation Unit (COU). This will be the first intensive care service available in the Eurobodalla region.
  • Increased access for chemotherapy treatments and renal dialysis.
  • Surgical and operating theatres and a day stay surgical unit.
  • Expanded medical imaging, including a new Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) service.
  • Ambulatory care for community outpatient services.
  • Paediatric and maternity services, and a special care nursery.
  • Mental health beds for short term admissions.
  • Enhanced education and training facilities, including a simulation laboratory.
Community members interested in working on the new Eurobodalla Regional Hospital will be encouraged to attend drop-in information sessions at a later date, to hear about opportunities to be part of the workforce for the new project.
