The next phase of the $200M Wyong Hospital Redevelopment is a step closer, with a builder appointed and construction set to begin early this year.

Health Infrastructure Acting Executive Director of Northern Projects Hayley Bell said the latest phase of the redevelopment would provide more new and significantly enhanced healthcare services to the Central Coast community, to meet the growing needs of the region.

“As part of the redevelopment, the cancer day unit will receive an additional $6.4M expansion, offering specialist cancer ambulatory treatment services, including chemotherapy and specialist consultations for residents in the northern area of the Central Coast,” she said.

“This will bring these cancer services closer to home for patients who currently need to travel around 45 kilometres each way to Gosford Hospital to receive care.”

A new Wyong women’s centre clinic is also being built, which will enhance antenatal and postnatal care at Wyong Hospital.

Among the services is a new early pregnancy assessment service for women and a new day assessment unit.

The clinics will boost women’s health services in the region, providing a wider range of outpatient services for high-risk pregnancies including foetal monitoring, as well as an increased range of gynaecological procedures.

Central Coast Local Health District Chief Executive Scott McLachlan said that in a first for Wyong Hospital, dedicated spaces for an Aboriginal health unit and carer support unit were also being delivered.

“The Aboriginal health unit will include clinical space to provide services for the local Aboriginal community including GP and allied health clinics, antenatal, postnatal and baby health checks and immunisations,” he said.

“The carer support unit will provide a welcoming space for carers to receive support and care including a lounge, quiet room, and a meeting room for group activities.

“Wyong Hospital’s pathology department will also be expanded to support the increased demand for pathology services.

“I am really excited to see this final phase of the redevelopment being delivered for the Central Coast community which will provide high quality health services, closer to home.”

The next phase of the redevelopment includes: expansion of the cancer day unit; a women’s health clinic; an Aboriginal health unit – Nunyara; a carer support unit, a new medical workspace; and an expanded NSW pathology lab.

Lipman has been appointed as builder following a competitive tender process.

The first phase of the Wyong Hospital redevelopment was completed in 2021, delivering state-of-the-art clinical spaces including a new emergency department, intensive care unit and medical imaging department.

The second phase was completed in 2022, delivering more operating theatre capacity and an expanded medical day unit and transit lounge.

  1. I think this is terrific. I live on the Morisset peninsula and it’s only 35 mins to Wyong hospital compared to 45 mins to John Hunter Hospital.
