The first image of what the new Mudgee Hospital will look like has been released.
The $70.2 million redevelopment involves a major upgrade to the existing health service, focusing on the expansion of inpatient and ambulatory care services. The upgraded Mudgee Health Service will continue to be a hub for health services for people living in the Mid-Western Regional local government area.

“The design team have done a superb job on the plans for the new hospital,” Mr Grant said, “This is the NSW Government delivering on our commitment to the community, the schematic design is the first opportunity the staff and the community will have to see how the new hospital will look.”
Mr Grant said further rounds of community consultation on the master plan will be held over the coming months.
“This is an exciting time for the Mudgee community and community input into the redevelopment is vital.
“The redevelopment will include a new emergency department, general medical and surgical units, perio-operative units, a maternity unit, ambulatory care, oral health, renal dialysis and oncology.”
“In conjunction with the design launch, community drop in sessions will be held in the coming weeks to allow the project team to answer any questions the community has,” Mr Grant said.
Early work on the new hospital is expected to commence in mid-2018 with construction to be underway by the end of the year.
