The long-awaited concept plans and schematic designs for the new $80 million Moree District Hospital have been publicly released by NSW Health.

Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall MP said the project design was the next important milestone for the $80 million Moree Hospital, funded by the State Government.

“The community and I have been eagerly awaiting the final new design and it’s great they’ve been finalised, with some key changes, in consultation with hospital staff,” Mr Marshall said.

“These designs include an artists’ impressions of what the new building will look like, how departments will connect within the hospital as well as the flow of staff, patients and visitors.

“The new Moree Hospital will have a new acute service building with an emergency department and operating theatres, increased bed numbers, a medical imaging department, maternity and inpatient unit, new pathology unit as well as a new main entry.

“The construction of a building on the existing hospital site will house the acute services and the existing hospital building will be refurbished to accommodate community health and outpatient services.

“The design illustrates a central courtyard, with a calming space for patients and visitors alike, while drawing on culturally appropriate features.

“The release of the concept plans and schematic designs is an exciting development for the community and we are now looking forward physical construction starting early next year.”

The entire project is expected to be completed in 2025.
