The Southern Tablelands community will benefit from a major upgrade of hospital services with the official opening of Goulburn Hospital’s clinical services building.
Premier Dominic Perrottet, Health Minister Brad Hazzard and MP for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman marked the milestone for the $165 million Goulburn Hospital and Health Service redevelopment, part of a record $10.8 billion investment in health infrastructure across NSW.
“The Goulburn Hospital redevelopment will have a hugely positive impact on the health outcomes of people in Southern NSW, and sets a benchmark as a referral hospital in our state,” Mr Perrottet said.
“The NSW Government has future-proofed care in the Southern Tablelands region with this brand new clinical services building.”
Mr Hazzard said the four-storey tower brings state-of-the-art healthcare services together under one roof, providing seamless care in a modern health facility.
“With a new emergency department and intensive care unit and the latest digital theatres this purpose-built facility will greatly improve the hospital experience for patients, carers and staff,” Mr Hazzard said.
Mrs Tuckerman said: “This is a long-awaited day for the entire Goulburn region. I am delighted to see the new facility – which brings world-class healthcare closer to home – open and ready to care for Goulburn and surrounding communities for many years to come.”
The new four-storey clinical services building will feature:

  • main entry and hospital reception
  • emergency department
  • medical imaging department
  • intensive care unit
  • operating theatres, day surgery and recovery areas
  • medical, surgical, paediatric, rehabilitation inpatient units with specific designated palliative care beds within the Medical IPU
  • maternal and newborn unit, birthing suite and special care nursery, as well as paediatric and antenatal outpatient clinics.

 The final works stage to complete the redevelopment of the hospital is expected to begin later this year.

NSW Health is investing $10.8 billion on capital infrastructure over the four years to 2024-25 with a program of $3.2 billion in 2021-22.
This record investment will ensure the 29 new and upgraded hospitals and health facilities announced prior to the 2019 state election will commence before March 2023.
