The $673.2 million Tweed Valley Hospital Development is the largest health capital investment in regional NSW history, and will provide a new regional referral hospital as well as interim upgrades at the existing Tweed Hospital (“Holding Works”) to help meet community needs until services transfer to the new hospital.

The priorities for the holding works were informed by the Northern NSW Local Health District’s Service Statement 2015- 2016, with further consultation undertaken for preparation of the Preliminary Business Case.

The endorsed scope for Holding Works was completed in July 2019 and included:  

  • Construction of a new Inpatient Unit block
  • Construction of a new theatre / Emergency Department Short Stay Unit block
  • Refurbishments to Coronary Care Unit, Intensive Care Unit, Emergency Department and Imaging.

An updated scope of works was approved in August 2019 to include the installation of a modular building to increase consult capacity at The Tweed Hospital. The Northern NSW Local Health District took possession of the new building in June 2020, with services transferring once fitout is completed in July 2020.
