Planning our hospital

How to build a hospitalThere are a number of stages in planning, designing and building a new hospital. The diagram to the right gives an indication of the process, with every project tailored to a community’s unique requirements. For more information on each of the stages in this process, please click here.

The project is being delivered by an Integrated Project Team comprising NSW Health Infrastructure and Northern NSW Local Health District staff, consultants, consumers, and community members.
Planning for the new hospital will be a collaborative process involving clinicians and other staff, patients and their carers, local stakeholders, and the community. We are currently seeking community and consumer representatives to participate in this process. Click here for details of how to apply.

Where are we now?

Since the Government announced funding for the Tweed Valley Hospital in 2017, the site selection process has been completed, service planning updated, new models of care explored and the Integrated Project Team established.
With master planning of the hospital campus now complete, initial concept designs for the hospital buildings are now being progressed. A State Significant Development (SSD) application, including Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) has now been lodged and is on public exhibition for 28 days. For more information click here
