Moree project team announced

Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall has announced the team which will undertake the detailed design of the $80 million new Moree hospital.

The redevelopment, which will provide a new hospital with upgraded clinical facil ities and services, is being led by NSW Health Infrastructure, working in part nership with Hunter New England Health.

Architects Nettleton Tribe have been appointed to complete the final design of the new hospital, while Savills Australia will project manage the build.

Now the design team has been locked-in, the project scope will be confirmed and a masterplan developed in consultation with staff, clinicians, council and the community.

MP Adam Marshall said from now and into early next year, the project team would commence targeted consultation with key stakeholders to inform the project's planning and design.

"There will opportunities for staff, clinicians and the broader community to have input on shaping the redevelopment as the project progresses.

"When the masterplan is finalised we'll know exactly how much it will cost and whether there's any variations to the already committed amounts, with the expectation a tranche of those funds will be available in next year's budget," Mr Marshall said.

"This is the largest investment in Moree's public health facilities in living memory, which is why meticulous planning is being undertaken to ensure every dollar spent results in improved health outcomes for the community, now and for decades to come," he said.

"I'm determined to see this redevelopment result in a brand new hospital everyone in the community, especially our hard-working staff, can be proud of and will service locals for decades in to the future."
