Improving facilities in our district
Western NSW Local Health District, in partnership with NSW Ministry of Health and Health Infrastructure, is committed to the provision of high quality, safe and appropriate public health services.
We have facilities in more than 40 locations, and we aim to make health services available when and where needed. This includes emergency services, general health, mental health, dental, allied health, public health, Aboriginal health and multicultural health services.
Undertaking building projects – revitalising and redeveloping our health facilities – is one way of ensuring that our communities can access the best possible public health services.
There are currently several significant capital works projects underway throughout the Local Health District.
Dubbo Hospital Redevelopment
The redevelopment of Dubbo Hospital is something the community and staff have been eagerly anticipating and we are well on the way to realising our dreams of a new and improved health service.
Lachlan Health Service Redevelopment
The Lachlan Health Service website has been designed to let the broader Parkes and Forbes communities know what’s happening with the
Lachlan Health Service (LHS) project.
Multipurpose Service (MPS) Program - Revitalising Rural Health
Planning is underway for a number of new or upgraded health facilities across NSW as part of the
Multipurpose Service (MPS) Program.
MPS Program is aimed at improving access to health and aged care services in smaller rural and remote communities.
Multipurpose facilities allow inpatient, residential aged care and community health services to be located together and close to home. The program of works aims to deliver flexible and integrated services tailored to meet each community’s unique clinical needs into the future.
