Planning our hospital

Our region is growing and changing, and to keep pace with these changes, healthcare delivery is changing too.

The 2018-19 State Budget confirmed a $582 million investment in health for the Tweed-Byron region, to deliver a brand new, state-of-the-art public hospital on a greenfield site, as well as interim upgrades at the existing Tweed Hospital to help meet the needs of the community until services transfer to the new hospital early 2024.

On 22 May 2020, the NSW Government announced a further $91.2 million in funding for the Tweed Valley Hospital Development bringing the total investment to $673.3 million. The funding will go towards expanding clinical services as well as a co-located Health Hub. Funding for the multi-deck car park brings the total investment in health for the Tweed Valley to $723.3 million. 

Building a new hospital is complex business with three distinct stages – planning, design and delivery. The Tweed Valley Hospital will be specifically tailored to the community’s unique requirements. To get a better understanding of how a hospital is built, read Health Infrastructure’s How to build a hospital booklet.  

Planning for the new hospital was a collaborative process involving clinicians and operational staff, patients and their carers, local stakeholders, and the broader community.
