The $50 million Tumut Hospital Redevelopment involves the planning, design and delivery of a fully integrated, modern health service which meets the needs of the local communities in Tumut, Gundagai, Batlow and Adelong now and into the future.
The Redevelopment involves the construction of a new, single-storey facility on the health service campus just south of the existing hospital buildings. The old hospital buildings will be demolished as part of the project.
The new Hospital will offer services under the one roof to allow for the modern delivery of health care.
The Redevelopment includes:
- Emergency Department
- Inpatient Unit
- Birthing Unit
- Operating Theatre and Day Surgery
- Wellness Centre including: community health; community mental health, community drug and alcohol services; outpatient services such as rehabilitation, specialist clinics, wound care; ambulatory services such as renal dialysis, infusion/transfusion services; space for education and group therapy services
- Quiet Room for families and a Cultural Room
- Clinical support services including: medical imaging unit; pharmacy; pathology with on-site laboratory
- Administration and non-clinical support areas
- Dedicated car parking for staff and service vehicles
- New helipad.
The NSW Government announced at least $50 million for the rebuild of Tumut Hospital in August 2018.
