The $127 million Dubbo Hospital Redevelopment will provide new and revitalised facilities to meet the increasing demand for health services in and around the Dubbo region. Stages 3 and 4 of the redevelopment will deliver a new emergency department and short stay unit; new medical imaging unit; new critical care floor comprising a coronary care and stroke unit, intensive care unit and cardiac catheter laboratory; new medical imaging unit; new ambulatory care unit; expansion of the oncology unit; new entry and drop-off zone; upgrade of the women’s and children’s community health services; and additional car parking.
Hansen Yuncken has completed Stage 3 and 4A, with Stage 4B works set for completion mid 2021. Working closely with the Western NSW Local Health District, Hansen Yuncken handed over the coronary care unit six months ahead of program. The team worked seven days a week to meet the revised handover date, providing an additional nineteen beds heading into the flu season.
The redevelopment cements Dubbo Hospital’s place as a major rural referral centre and acute care hospital for specialty services in Dubbo and surrounding areas.
