Broken Hill, NSW
Weeks to build
Off the back of our extensive regional health experience Hutchinson Builders was awarded the NSW Government’s tender to deliver the redevelopment of the Broken Hill Base Hospital and Dental Facility.
Built in 1889, Broken Hill Base Hospital is now one of New South Wales’ oldest rural referral centres servicing far west region of the state.
This major renewal project included the upgrade of parts of the main hospital and construction of a new modular dental facility and Community Health Centre, in line with the Far West Local Health District’s (FWLHD) Clinical Services Plan.
The new integrated Community Health Centre includes a five-chair dental health facility; child, family and community health services; and new staff offices. The upgrade to the main building includes reconfiguration of the hospital’s ambulatory care wing to expand cancer care services and consolidate waiting areas for patients. The 42 individual modular components were constructed at Hutchies’ Toowoomba Modular Yard and transported by road to site.
Consultation was a significant part of the planning process to ensure the clinical priorities of the Broken Hill Base Hospital and Dental Facility were thoroughly considered and well executed. The overall redevelopment modernises existing facilities at Broken Hill and ensure the local community has access to first-class health services.
