Car park project transforms hospital access

The $30 million car park project at Dubbo Hospital is now complete with the official opening of a new multi-storey car park.

Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders and Western NSW Local Health District Chief Executive Mark Spittal today toured the facility which will provide hundreds of new car parking spaces on the campus.

“The project will provide more than 350 new spaces within the hospital campus and significantly improve access to our world-class health facilities, making it easier for people from right across our region to travel to Dubbo for their healthcare needs,” Mr Saunders said.

“These additional car parking spaces will support the uplift in hospital services, as a result of the $306.3 million Dubbo Hospital Redevelopment and Western Cancer Centre, boosting the overall parking capacity on campus and improving access to one of NSW’s busiest regional hospitals.

“This was a key election commitment of mine so I’m really proud to see it completed.”

The multi-storey car park is located on the western side of the campus and will be used by staff, freeing up hundreds of spaces close to the hospital’s main entrance for patients and visitors. Infrastructure upgrades including new roadways, footpaths, hospital access, new and improved lighting and security have also been delivered.

In addition to the 300 spaces inside the multi-storey car park, the project also includes:

  • A 40-space ground level car park on the eastern side of the campus for patients and visitors (opened in November 2021);
  • A dedicated 20-space ground level car park adjacent to the Western Cancer Centre for oncology patients and families (opened in April 2022).

Mr Spittal said the completion of the project is especially meaningful for Dubbo Hospital.

“The opening of the multi-storey car park marks the end of Stages 3 and 4 of the Dubbo Hospital redevelopment, which now features state-of-the-art clinical buildings and the highest quality health services for the people of Western NSW,” Mr Spittal said.

The $30 million car park project at Dubbo Hospital is part of the NSW Government’s record $11.9 billion investment in health infrastructure over four years to 2025-26, with nearly a third of the capital allocation in this financial year going towards regional and rural health facilities.
