Designs for the $95 million Temora Health Service redevelopment have been unveiled, with the community invited to have their say on the new state-of-the-art facility.

A series of artist impressions offer a peek at the proposed buildings along with the landscaping and an aerial view.

The new Temora Health Service includes upgraded emergency department services, and inpatient accommodation with beds available for medical, surgical, rehabilitation, palliative care, and maternity patients.

“The NSW Government will invest a further $15 million in the Temora Health Service build as part of the 2024-25 State Budget, bringing the total investment in the redevelopment to $95 million,” NSW Health Minister Ryan Park said.

“Feedback from the local community throughout the planning and design process for the new Temora Hospital has been extremely valuable in shaping the redevelopment to ensure it meets the region’s unique health needs.

“The hospital’s design has a strong connection to Country, with light-filled spaces, alongside direct access to outdoor areas and improved landscaping which will create a welcoming environment for patients, visitors and staff.”

Other facilities and services include perioperative facilities for surgery and procedures, medical imaging, community and allied health, ambulatory clinics, and clinical and non-clinical support services.

The car parking for patients, staff, and visitors will also be improved, as well as separate emergency and service vehicle entry.

The new designs were informed by feedback and consultation with health professionals, staff, consumers, Aboriginal community representatives, and the Local Health Advisory Committee and continue into the next phase, focusing on interior furnishings, fixtures, equipment, art, and landscaping.

Spokesperson for Cootamundra, Labor MLC Stephen Lawrence said they looked forward to the completion of a functional and welcoming facility.

“Every step in the process puts us closer to a redeveloped Temora Health Service, which is exciting for the local communities of the Temora Shire in the Riverina, including Temora and Ariah Park,” Mr Lawrence said.

“The final scope for the project will be finalised through the design process, with key clinical services to be prioritised.”

The process for the rollout of new healthcare facilities is divided into three key phases – planning, design and delivery, with the Temora Health Service redevelopment now in the second phase.

Construction timeframes will be confirmed following planning approvals and the appointment of a building contractor, with work to be carefully staged to ensure minimal disruption to patients and carers.
