Latest Glen Innes designs on display

Planning for the Glen Innes Hospital Redevelopment is progressing as part of the NSW Government’s $50 million investment to improve health outcomes for Glen Innes and the surrounding community.

The project scope includes new infrastructure for the emergency department, medical imaging, ambulance bays, and a new main entrance and car parking with access from Ferguson Street. The new building will be linked to the existing hospital ensuring all services remain connected onsite. Also, as part of the redevelopment project, the operating theatre will receive minor works and the birthing suite will undergo a light refurbishment.

The design process explored many options for delivering the aims of the redevelopment, within the available budget and challenging construction market, and includes future expansion zones to allow a staged approach to deliver the full master plan. This stage of the redevelopment will improve flows throughout the hospital for patients and staff. The demolition of the old nurses building that was completed in late 2023 will allow for a construction staging zone and support the delivery of the full master plan in the future.

The Spanish Flu Building will be retained in this stage of the redevelopment and access for the neighbouring museum will remain from Ferguson Street.

The project team appreciates the valuable time and input provided by staff and stakeholders into the design process for the redevelopment. The design will be finalised prior to the end of the year and following this a builder will be engaged with construction forecast to commence in 2025. Community pop-ups will be occurring in the coming months with more details to be shared soon.
