STAGES 3 AND 4 OF DUBBO HOSPITAL REDEVELOPMENT PROGRESSES
The $150 million Dubbo Hospital Redevelopment Project has reached another major milestone with tenders being called for the construction of an additional floor on the new clinical services building which will include a contemporary and expanded Surgical inpatient unit, the refurbishment of the old maternity building for the Medical Records Department and education facilities.
Ongoing consultation and planning with staff and clinicians is also being carried out to determine the schematic design for Stages 3 and 4 which includes:
- A new Emergency Department and Short Stay Unit;
- A new Medical Imaging Unit;
- A new Critical Care Floor comprising of a
o Coronary Care/ Stroke Unit;
o Intensive Care Unit
o Cardiac Cath Lab
- A new Ambulatory Care Centre;
- A new front of house entry and drop off zone; and
- Additional car parking.
A new and expanded Renal Unit will also be delivered concurrently with Dubbo Hospital Redevelopment Stages 3 and 4.
A carefully staged approach is being taken to deliver the next phase of Dubbo Hospital’s major transformation to ensure minimal disruption to patient services during the construction process.
The schematic design, which will be unveiled in the coming months, will show where these new services will be delivered.
Once the schematic design is finalised, detailed design planning and consultation will continue to determine the layout of each room and clinical space.
Construction on the additional floor of the new clinical services building will commence following the award of the tender.
The NSW Government has allocated $150 million to deliver Stages 3 and 4 of the Dubbo Hospital Redevelopment.
