Lead Design team appointed for next stages of Dubbo Hospital redevelopment
NSW Deputy Premier and Member for Dubbo Troy Grant said planning for Stages 3 and 4 of the Dubbo Hospital redevelopment will pick up the pace, with the appointment of the lead design team this week.
Mr Grant said the team will recommence planning for the $150 million redevelopment - complementing the soon-to-be-completed $91.3 million redevelopment of Stages 1 and 2.
“NSW Health Infrastructure has selected TSA Management PTY LTD (project manager), Davis Langdon (Cost manager) and HDR Rice Daubney (architects) to progress the next stages of Dubbo Hospital’s major expansion and upgrade,” Mr Grant said.
“The design team will work with the Western NSW Local Health District and Dubbo Hospital to undertake a detailed planning process and establish how facilities will be redeveloped and constructed to deliver the clinical services priorities.”
Stages 3 and 4 of the Dubbo Hospital redevelopment will include:
- new emergency department;
- imaging facilities;
- ambulatory care centre;
- cardiac catheterisation lab;
- new medical inpatient ward;
- refurbishment of the oncology, cardiovascular and stroke units;
- expansion of the intensive care unit;
- a new front of house entry, landscaping and drop off zone; and
- additional car parking will also form part of this major redevelopment.
In December 2013, the NSW Government committed $600,000 to commence early planning for Stages 3 and 4 of the Dubbo Hospital redevelopment.
An extensive consultation process was undertaken to determine the clinical service priorities for the next stages and a preliminary business case was submitted to Treasury NSW in December 2014.
In January 2015, the NSW Government committed a further $150 million to complete the next stages.
The $91.3 million Stages 1 and 2 redevelopment is jointly-funded, with the NSW Government providing $84.2 million and the Commonwealth contributing $7.1 million from the Health and Hospitals Fund.
Construction on the new clinical services building is scheduled for completion in late 2015 and will be followed by the refurbishment of renal services.
