Yesterday Premier Gladys Berejiklian along with Member for Murray Adrian Piccoli announced a $35 million upgrade for Griffith Base Hospital.
The announcement means that the hospital will be modernized and expanded as part of the upgrade as well as funding to redevelop different areas of the current Griffith Base Hospital.
Ms Berejiklian said "This funding boost recognizes that while Griffith Hospital provides a quality service to the local community, the physical environment and capacity of the hospital needs to be developed"
It's anticipated that the redevelopment will include;
- Refurbished and modernized medical and surgical inpatient accommodation.
- Upgraded and increased capacity of ambulatory care clinics and treatment spaces, including renal dialysis and oncology.
- Upgraded critical care services, including the Intensive Care Unit
- Improved access and onsite parking.
Mr Piccoli said he was very pleased the NSW Government was ensuring Griffith Hospital would benefit from it's regional health infrastructure investments.
Detailed scoping work is still to be done over the next 12 months.
