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 a full replacement of a single-storey facility as existing health services are delivered from numerous, on-site buildings that are out-dated, disjointed and do not allow 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 site.
The NSW Government announced at least $50 million for the rebuild of Tumut Hospital in August 2018.
