Redeveloped $200 Mn Wyong Hospital to provide first-class healthcare services to Central Coast

A new, state-of-the-art hospital on the Central Coast is one step closer to completion with the six-storey clinical services building reaching its highest point.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the $200 million Wyong Hospital redevelopment would provide first-class healthcare services to the Central Coast.

“The $200 million Wyong Hospital Redevelopment will not only significantly increase health service capacity for the local community, it is also boosting employment for the region,” Ms Berejiklian said.

“This redevelopment has created more than 800 construction jobs, with more than 650 of these workers living locally.”

Health Minister Brad Hazzard said the redeveloped hospital would have 60 additional inpatient beds.

“The NSW Government is continuing to invest in public hospitals across the state, with more than 30 per cent of the almost $2.7 billion allocated for health capital works in 2019-2020 going to regional and rural areas,” Mr Hazzard said.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said between 2016 and 2041 an additional 95,250 people are expected to call the Central Coast home.

“This $200 million transformation of Wyong Hospital will cater for our community’s health care needs now and into the future. It builds on the hundreds of millions of dollars the NSW Government is investing in roads, schools and community infrastructure across the Coast,” Mr Crouch said.
