Griffith Base Hospital Redevelopment

The $250 million Griffith Base Hospital Redevelopment involves the planning, design and delivery of a hospital designed to meet the needs of Griffith and the surrounding communities both now and into the future.

The project is being delivered in several phases. They include early and enabling works now underway on the health campus and the delivery of a new multi-storey hospital in the main works.

Early and enabling works - Underway now

Non clinical support building, temporary pediatrics ward, and demolition packages

Finalise design and Planning Approval: Early 2020
Tender Award: Mid 2020
Construction: Late 2020
These early and enabling works will further clear the future acute services site area and ensure continued health service operation during the main construction works. Key milestones include:

  • A new non clinical support building with capacity to service the new hospital building
  • Relocation of the pediatric ward to free up the site for the future hospital and maintain this service with a close relationship to the maternity unit
  • Demolition of redundant buildings which sit within the future redevelopment zone, making the site ready for the new hospital.
