MRI Service opens At Goulburn base hospital

The Goulburn community will benefit from state-of-the-art diagnostic technology with the opening of a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) service, as part of the $165 million Goulburn Hospital and Health Service Redevelopment.

The launch of the MRI service is exciting news for the Goulburn community who will now have access to critical diagnostic imaging services close to home.
The first inpatient MRI scans took place at Goulburn Hospital in late May 2023, and the service is expected to open to outpatients in coming weeks.
Having MRI services here in Goulburn means people don’t need to travel to Canberra or Sydney anymore, helping reduce out-of-pocket costs and improve disease detection and health outcomes.
MRI scans help to diagnose a range of conditions that other diagnostic scans cannot. It is especially useful for soft tissue scans and is important for the planning and management of cancer treatments.
Bulk billing for the Goulburn Hospital MRI service will be available through Medicare.
The MRI is being delivered as part of the final works stage of the $165 million Goulburn Hospital and Health Service Redevelopment, which is currently underway.
The final works scope includes refurbishing parts of the old hospital to continue delivering a comprehensive range of clinical services for the community.
Additional Health services to be delivered as part of the final works program include:
  • Ambulatory outpatients – including physiotherapy and occupational therapy, hospital in the home, wound clinics, stress testing and audiometry
  • Oncology and Aboriginal health
  • Transitional living unit
  • Clinical training facility – part of the ANU redevelopment
  • Upgraded car parking off Albert Street to cater for renal, oncology and ambulatory outpatients and staff workspaces
