The new Tweed Valley Hospital will be purpose-built, delivering health services to residents of the Tweed and Byron local Government areas. TSA is part of an integrated project team, providing a range of services including health facility planning and functional brief preparation, reporting and communication, business case development, design management and control, procurement and contract administration, commissioning and facilities management, project management and coordination, programming and scheduling, quality control, and risk management.
A range of innovative and efficient building solutions will be explored as part of the planning progresses, including the opportunity to provide workspace, education and ambulatory care spaces in different classes of building.
The new hospital will provide expanded emergency department services, operating theatres and surgical services, intensive care and rehabilitation services, increased capacity in medical and surgical beds, and a boost to ambulatory care services. It will also provide communities with specialised and local health services, such as radiation oncology and cardiac catheterisation, as well as expanded renal services to address the increasing incidence of chronic kidney disease in the Tweed Valley.
The new facility will accommodate over 350 beds, include culturally appropriate spaces to meet the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and accommodate the needs of the residents and visiting community.
