Lismore Base Hospital’s $320 million redevelopment commenced in 2014
and is scheduled for completion in 2021.

More than $260 million of this project is funded by the NSW Government, with an additional $60 million from the Federal Government’s Health and Hospitals Fund.

The redevelopment included a new $9.27 multi-storey carpark between Uralba and Dalziel Streets which included 270 car parking spaces over five levels. The car park opened in July 2016 and is designed for future expansion, if required.

When fully operational by 30 March 2020, the hospital’s new North Tower will include:

  • Two new inpatient wards (one medical and one surgical)
  • An expanded Intensive Care Unit (ICU)
  • An expanded Pharmacy
  • An expanded Medical Imaging/Radiology unit
  • An expanded Day Surgery and Endoscopy unit
  • A new and expanded Admissions
  • Anaesthetist’s offices
  • Expanded Security offices

The new North Tower builds on the enhanced health services that were delivered as part of the redevelopment’s South Tower, which became operational in several stages from August 2016 to April 2018. The South Tower features:

  • a new theatre suite featuring six operating theatres and two procedure rooms
  • Central Sterile Services Department (CSSD)
  • two inpatient units
  • expanded Paediatric Unit and Women’s Care Unit
  • New Emergency Department
  • New and expanded Renal department

Once North Tower becomes fully operational by 1 April, 2020, extensive refurbishment on the existing hospital will begin, and will include: a new Cardiac Care Unit; new education, training and research facilities; and new Community Health and Ambulatory Care Services.
