An expanded emergency department along with new birthing, maternity and inpatient units are slated for completion by late 2025.
A builder has been appointed to deliver the $53 million Gunnedah Hospital Redevelopment project in the Hunter New England LHD.
Richard Crookes Constructions has been engaged following a competitive tender process, to build a new acute services building, which will house an expanded emergency department and a modern birthing, maternity and inpatient unit. A new main entry and reception will also be created through refurbishment of the former community health entry.
“All hospital services will continue to operate onsite during construction, which follows significant planning and design work by the project team, in collaboration with staff, stakeholders and the community,” said NSW Health Minister Ryan Parks.
“It’s great to hear the construction team will be onsite from later this month to commence early works which will include the establishment of some temporary service locations.”
An Arts Working Group has been established to ensure the new hospital is a welcoming environment that reflects the heritage and culture of the region.
Richard Crookes Construction has been working with the project team since early 2023. Main works construction is expected to begin in early 2024 and is due to be completed in late 2025.
