The project

The Government is investing $582 million in health for the Tweed-Byron region, which will include:

  • Delivery of a new major regional referral hospital to provide the health services required to meet the needs of the growing population of the Tweed-Byron region, in conjunction with the other hospitals and community health centres across the region.
  • Master planning for additional health, education, training and research facilities to support these health services, which will be developed with service partners over time. These areas will be used initially for construction site/compound and car parking.
  • Delivery of the supporting infrastructure required for the new hospital, including outdoor green spaces, campus roads and car parking, external road upgrades and connections, utilities connections, and other site infrastructure.


The new Tweed Valley Hospital will provide:

  • more beds
  • expanded emergency department
  • enhanced medical, surgical and mental health services
  • expanded outpatient services with more clinics
  • new interventional cardiology service
  • new radiotherapy service as part of integrated cancer care.


The Tweed Valley Hospital will be a major referral hospital at the heart of the network of hospitals and community health facilities located across the Tweed-Byron region. This includes Murwillumbah District Hospital, Byron Central Hospital, community health facilities, and other out-of-hospital services. Hospital services will move from the existing Tweed Hospital to the new site when it opens to patients in 2023.

A range of community health and other out-of-hospital services will continue to be provided in Tweed Heads. The range of the services will be confirmed through further clinical service planning.
