About the project

The Bathurst Hospital Redevelopment will provide more of the care you need, closer to home, with welcoming, safe and convenient new facilities to make your experience of hospital better.

The project will:
  • Redevelop the existing hospital to provide patients, carers and visitors with modern health facilities which can offer first-class care as close to home as possible
  • Expand clinical services
  • Improve the experience of hospital for patient, carers and visitors
  • Grow Bathurst as a major health hub for surrounding communities including Blayney, Oberon and Rylstone
  • Help us attract and retain valuable healthcare staff by delivering fit for purpose, contemporary working environments
  • Boost the local economy through construction and health jobs, and business opportunities.  
Feedback and input from staff, the local community, carers and patients with lived experience will be an important part of the planning process, to ensure the new facility reflects the needs and values of the community.

The project is now in the early planning stages. To see how we plan, design and build hospital redevelopment, visit How to Build a Hospital.

The redevelopment is in addition to the new MRI for Bathurst Hospital.

How to build a hospital

Designing new health facilities takes time and careful consideration. Over the coming months, we will work with staff and community to make sure the new facility meets the needs of the people who will use it. To find out how we design and build new health facilities, check out the How to Build a Hospital video.
