The Tweed Valley Hospital, a A$723.3m ($478.7m) project in New South Wales (NSW), Australia, is scheduled to start serving patients on 14 May 2024.
This announcement was made by Minister for Regional Health Ryan Park who is expected to provide healthcare services to the Tweed Valley region, with the capacity to treat around 5,000 patients annually.
According to Northern NSW Local Health District CEO Tracey Maisey, the new hospital is the largest whole of hospital move in regional NSW history.
The project supported up to 650 jobs, with 75% of workers being local to the Tweed and Byron regions.
This development includes over 190 new beds, 16 emergency department treatment spaces, and expanded health services, reducing the need for patients to travel outside the region.
The hospital is planned to feature a learning, development, and research facility, fostering educational opportunities for staff.
