Construction for the new Eurobodalla Regional Hospital has been given the green light, with the State Significant Development Application (SSDA) approved for the project.

The NSW Government’s $260 million investment in the new hospital will deliver a range of expanded and enhanced healthcare services closer to home for the entire Eurobodalla Shire community from Narooma to Batemans Bay.

The new Eurobodalla Regional Hospital will be established as a Level 4 health facility and include:

  • 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 capacity for chemotherapy treatments and access to 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.

Work to prepare the site for main works will soon get underway, with construction of the new Eurobodalla Regional Hospital expected to start in June 2024.

The Batemans Bay Hospital and Moruya Hospitals will continue to operate and provide healthcare services for the community, while the new Eurobodalla Regional Hospital and $20 million Batemans Bay Community Health facility is being built.
