The Goulburn Base Hospital redevelopment will be even better than originally planned thanks to a $30 million boost from the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government, bringing the total investment to $150 million – adding new cancer and renal services facilities. 

Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced the additional investment today with Member for Goulburn Pru Goward and Liberal candidate for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman. 

“We are ensuring world-class health facilities are delivered to the Goulburn community,” Ms Berejiklian said. 

“The NSW Government is investing a record $8 billion in health infrastructure over the next four years, including record investment in the regions so that patients receive high-quality health care closer to home.” 

The $150 million investment will go towards a new four-storey Clinical Services Building that will provide the Goulburn community with:
– A new emergency department
– A new medical imaging department
– New operating theatres, day surgery, recovery and pre-admission areas
– New medical, surgical paediatric and geriatric inpatient wards with specifically designated palliative care beds
– A new maternity and birthing suite 

The project will also increase car parking by more than a third and extend the Community Health building. 

The additional $30 million will add new outpatient and allied health clinics, renal and chemotherapy facilities to the redevelopment. 

Member for Goulburn Pru Goward said preliminary work on the redevelopment was progressing well and construction was expected to commence in the coming weeks. 

“Early works to prepare the site for construction, and design of the new Clinical Services Building, is almost complete,” Ms Goward said. 

“Hospital staff and the community have had a keen interest in this project, and the feedback they have provided has been very important in helping ensure the new health facilities meet their needs.” 

Liberal candidate for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman said the upgraded Goulburn Base Hospital will ensure hardworking doctors, nurses and other health professionals and support personnel will have a workplace they can be proud of.  

“Goulburn is a great place to live, and I have no doubt this redevelopment will go a long way in attracting more quality health care staff to the region,” Ms Tuckerman said.
