The $70.7 million Mudgee Hospital Redevelopment is an exciting project that will provide a major upgrade to the health service’s ageing infrastructure.
The new $70.7 million Mudgee Hospital will provide a modern upgrade to the existing health service and more contemporary facilities and integrated models of health care. The new building will house all of the existing hospital services including Community Health in the new building. Services in the new hospital building will include:
- An Emergency Department
- An Inpatient Unit (IPU)
- Operating Theatres
- A Maternity Unit
- Outpatient services including:
- Community Health
- Mental Health
- Occupational Therapy
- Oral Health (dental clinic)
- Renal Dialysis and Oncology
The Mudgee Hospital will also have, for the first time, a CT scanner.
The upgraded Mudgee Health Service will continue to be a health services hub for people living in the Mid-Western Regional Local Government Area, and meet their health service needs through to 2027.
Where are we up to?
The opening of the $70.7 million Mudgee Hospital Redevelopment has been bought forward with commissioning of the new hospital expected to occur in late May.
The new facility will enable Mudgee Hospital’s highly valued health staff to provide the very best care to the community for years to come.
The hospital has worked closely with the Mid-Western Regional Council and a range of local businesses, community groups, staff and residents during the planning phases of the project. We appreciate their involvement and support and look forward to continuing to work with them during the construction phase.
The design for the new facility was developed with input from staff, clinicians, patient user groups and the broader Mudgee community.
The Schematic Design plans and images are available below. The redevelopment project team is also available to present details of the design to local groups and organisations.
The project team has also sought suggestions and ideas from local stakeholders on the kind of art they would like to see in the new hospital. An Art Working Group will be established in 2019 to progress the development of the Art Strategy.
