Designs for $438 million Shoalhaven Hospital unveiled for getting people’s feedback

The community has been provided with its first look at designs for the $438 million Shoalhaven Hospital redevelopment showcasing the vision for the state-of-the-art health facility.

Minister for Health Brad Hazzard said the NSW Government is investing in a significant expansion of Shoalhaven Hospital, which will provide the local community with enhanced health services.

“In a major step forward for the redevelopment, new artist impressions have been unveiled today revealing the design for the hospital precinct, which will transform healthcare services for the Shoalhaven community and improve health outcomes,” Mr Hazzard said.

Minister for Regional Health Bronnie Taylor said the redevelopment of Shoalhaven Hospital is about future proofing healthcare in the region.

“I’m very excited to share the new artist impressions of the Shoalhaven Hospital redevelopment with the community and encourage everyone to provide feedback as we move forward with its delivery. This major investment from the NSW Government marks a new era in healthcare for the South Coast,” Mrs Taylor said.

“A new acute services building connecting to the existing hospital, rooftop helipad, and refurbishment of existing hospital buildings are just some of the highlights of this major redevelopment.

“The NSW Government is also improving access to the hospital with alternate entry and drop off areas on Shoalhaven Street and off North Street. There will also be a new dedicated entrance for ambulances.

Local Member and the Parliamentary Secretary for the South Coast, Shelley Hancock, said the southern end of Nowra Park will be retained as greenspace for the local community to enjoy.

Hancock encouraged the local community to attend pop-up stalls that will be taking place throughout the region, where members of the project team will be on site to answer any questions about the redevelopment.
