Macksville Hospital Development

New Macksville Hospital opened 26 May 2020 – view brochure.

The NSW Government committed $73 million to the Macksville Hospital development to build a new facility on a new site.

Macksville’s community has a set of unique health challenges, including chronic illness and complex health needs due to its significant aged and Aboriginal population.

The project enhances patient care while also improving ambulatory care and outpatient treatments including improved facilities in emergency, community health, operating theatres, maternity and inpatient units.

To get the best clinical outcomes for the community, the Mid North Coast Local Health District in partnership with Health Infrastructure facilitated Project User Groups. These groups were made up of clinicians and other staff, patients, carers, as well as members of the community who provided valuable and ongoing insight into the project.

In late 2017 it was announced that the hospital will be built on a new site located three kilometres north of Macksville town centre.

The Macksville Hospital Development received planning approval from the NSW Department of Planning and Environment in March 2019. To view the State Significant Development Application and related documents available on the Department of Planning, Industry and Environments Major Projects website.

Furthermore, a project overview can be found at the Health Infrastructure’s website.
