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.
Mudgee Hospital Redevelopment
The Mudgee Hospital Redevelopment is an exciting project that will provide a major upgrade to the health service’s ageing infrastructure. Planning has commenced, and initial details on the project can be found by clicking on the below link, with further information to come – watch this space!
Multipurpose Service (MPS) Program - Revitalising Rural Health
Multipurpose Service (MPS) facilities allow inpatient, residential aged care and community health services to be located together and close to home.
Planning and construction is underway for a number of new or upgraded health facilities across NSW as part of the Multipurpose Service Program. The
MPS Program is aimed at improving access to health and aged care services in smaller rural and remote communities.
In the Western NSW Local Health District, there are currently four MPS redevelopment projects occurring at Molong, Coolah, Rylstone and Cobar. The Walgett MPS redevelopment project was officially opened in September 2016.
