Australia’s New South Wales (NSW) Government has announced the approval of the State Significant Development Application (SSDA) for the new A$260m ($173m) Eurobodalla Regional Hospital.

This marks a significant milestone in the construction of the healthcare facility, which aims to enhance medical services for the Eurobodalla Shire community in NSW.  

The investment by the NSW government in this hospital is further aimed at expanding the regional healthcare services, providing much-needed facilities closer to home for residents from Narooma to Batemans Bay. 

Once open, the Eurobodalla Regional Hospital will become a Level 4 health facility, featuring an emergency department (ED) with greater capacity than the current Moruya and Batemans Bay hospitals combined.  

It will also introduce an eight-bed intensive care unit (ICU)/close observation unit (COU), which will be the first service of its kind in the Eurobodalla region. 

In addition to critical care, the hospital will increase chemotherapy treatment capacity and offer access to renal dialysis.

The hospital will also have mental health beds for short-term admissions, surgical and operating theatres, a day-stay surgical unit, as well as enhanced education and training facilities such as a simulation laboratory. 

Besides, the range of services at the hospital will encompass ambulatory care mainly for the community outpatient services, paediatric and maternity services with a special care nursery, and medical imaging capabilities, including a new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) service.  

Site preparation for the hospital’s main works is set to begin soon, with the construction start date projected for next month. 

While the new Eurobodalla Regional Hospital is under construction, the Batemans Bay Hospital and Moruya Hospitals will maintain operations.  

They will continue delivering healthcare services alongside the development of the new hospital and the A$20m Batemans Bay Community Health facility

NSW regional health minister Ryan Park said: “I’m thrilled the community is a step closer to accessing a brand-new hospital, which will provide more health services than are currently available at both Moruya and Batemans Bay hospitals combined.  

“It will reduce the need to travel for care and ultimately improve health outcomes for everyone in Eurobodalla, no matter where they live.”
