Stage 3 of the Muswellbrook Hospital Redevelopment will build on and complement Stages 1 and 2. It consolidates all acute clinical services into one building and will include:   

  • A 33-bed inpatient unit including two palliative care beds, a four-bed maternity inpatient unit and two birthing suites   
  • Operating suite with an operating theatre and a procedure room  
  • Central sterilising service   
  • Additional staff overnight rooms   
  • Relocation of community health services  

Take a look at the concept design.   

Stage 1 of the redevelopment was completed in 2015 and included a new emergency department.    

Stage 2 was completed in 2019 at a cost of $21.5 million and included new renal and infusion unit services, improved spaces for medical imaging and pathology collection, as well as refurbished outpatient areas and oral health services.    

Health Infrastructure engaged a project team to undertake the detailed planning and design for the redevelopment. It includes project management company Mostyn Copper and architects DWP.   

Following extensive planning works we will announce a works contractor in late 2022 to fit out the new operating suite and central sterilising services works.   

We welcome feedback from the community. The concept design is now available for review.  

Community members are welcome to email feedback to hi-muswellbrook@health.nsw.gov.au  

Throughout the early planning phase of the project, the team engaged with staff members across a range of disciplines to provide input into the redevelopment plans. These meetings have been vital in delivering the designs for clinical, administrative, detailed engineering systems and support areas.  

We held a Community Information Session in Muswellbrook on 24 June 2022 and heard from a range of community members.   

We will continue to provide the community and staff with updates, and we’ll also be engaging with local Aboriginal communities.   

No. There will not be any additional car spaces included as part of the redevelopment. The project is focused on replacing ageing infrastructure with contemporary spaces for clinical services.
