Temora Health Service’s $80 million redevelopment is slowly progressing with the appointment of the project teams.

Capital Insight has been appointed as the project manager, and international architectural firm HDR has been selected to design the redevelopment.

Capital Insight is an award-winning leader in health and aged-care projects, having completed prominent sites around Australia, including the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse cancer hospital and the Gold Coast University Hospital.

It was recently announced that Capital Insight will also be managing the $750 million redevelopment of the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital.

HDR was this year ranked the top healthcare design firm for the 23rd time in the Modern Healthcare Construction & Design Survey.

Temora Health Services Facility Manager said Temora Hospital redevelopment will deliver contemporary models of care and services that are flexible, efficient and sustainable for our community.

“It is indeed an exciting time for the Temora community,” Ms Skidmore.

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said an experienced team of project managers, architects and cost managers, who have worked on a range of health infrastructure projects in both metro and regional areas, had been engaged to progress master planning for the Temora Hospital redevelopment.

“The appointment of the project team is a key milestone in the advancement of healthcare for the region and will ensure we can move ahead and deliver the best possible hospital to support the health needs of the Temora community now and into the future,” Ms Cooke said.

Minister for Regional Health Bronnie Taylor said the focus of the team would include the start of master planning for the hospital.

“With the project team on board, we will be consulting with key stakeholders including clinicians, staff, patients and the local community to inform the project’s planning and design,” Mrs Taylor said.

“It’s an exciting project for the entire Temora community, and the NSW Government is committed to ensuring regional communities like Temora have access to quality health care and modern health facilities that meet the needs of the region.

“The full range of services and infrastructure to be delivered as part of the redevelopment will be identified through the planning phase.”

Earlier this year, Murrumbidgee Local Health District (MLHD) invited local stakeholders and the community to provide feedback on the draft Clinical Services Plan (CSP) for the hospital redevelopment.

The CSP outlines the health services required to meet the community’s needs now and into the future and makes recommendations about the best way to deliver these services to the community.

MLHD completed the review and endorsed the CSP in July. Building hospitals involves three key phases: planning, design and delivery.
