The 2018-19 State Budget confirmed a $582 million investment in health for the Tweed Valley, including a brand new, state-of-the-art hospital with greater capacity and capability to serve the Tweed-Byron community, as well as interim upgrades at The Tweed Hospital.
The vision for the Tweed Valley Hospital Development is to deliver a life-changing healthcare solution for the Tweed-Byron region.
The new hospital will deliver:
- additional inpatient capacity
- an expanded emergency department
- enhanced surgical and ambulatory care services
- diagnostic and interventional cardiology
- an integrated cancer care service, including radiotherapy.
Following a comprehensive site selection and community consultation process, 16 hectares of land at 771 Cudgen Road, opposite Kingscliff TAFE, has been identified as the site for the new hospital campus.
The project consists of:
- Delivery of a new major 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 necessary 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 at-grade car parking
- Delivery of the supporting infrastructure required for the new hospital, including greenspace and other amenity spaces, campus roads and car parking, external road upgrades and connections, utilities connections, and other site infrastructure.
