The project facilitated an upgrade of Goulburn Hospital to provide improved capacity through fit-for purpose infrastructure including the emergency department, intensive care unit and theatres, inpatient services and a comprehensive ambulatory care service. Goulburn Health Service operated from three separate sites; Goulburn Base Hospital, Bourke Street Health Service and Kenmore Hospital. The redevelopment project involved the consolidation of Goulburn Health Services to reduce the fragmentation of services across multiple sites.
The project scope consists of a new four-storey acute clinical services building comprising acute Medical and Surgical inpatient units (IPUs), Intensive Care Unit, Perioperative Suite, Sub-acute IPU comprising Rehabilitation, Geriatric Evaluation and Management and Palliative Care beds, Maternity and Paediatric IPUs, Emergency Department, Pharmacy and Medical Imaging. TSA is engaged for the project initiation, feasibility development and schematic development.
To support this, in addition to the Project Management Services provided, TSA was engaged to carry out change management activities to drive the engagement with staff and consumers on new models of care, covering stakeholder engagement and communications, consumer experience program, and clinical redesign training. We are currently engaged on delivery.
Construction on the $150 million NSW Government project has now begun and will deliver a fit-for-purpose facility that will continue to deliver high-quality healthcare for the Goulburn region into the future.
The redevelopment is expected to be complete in late 2021 and will include a new four-storey Clinical Services Building with a new main entry and hospital reception; a new emergency department; a new medical imaging department; a new intensive care unit; new operating theatres, day surgery, recovery and pre-admission areas; new medical, surgical, paediatric and geriatric inpatient wards with specific designated palliative care beds and; a new maternity and birthing suite.
