Better access to Dubbo Hospital’s world-class services is just around the corner, with the construction of the new multi-storey car park reaching its highest point.
To celebrate the “topping out” of the carpark, Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders has placed a tree on top of the structure.
“Dubbo Hospital is now the envy of regional NSW, but with improved services you also need improved accessibility,” Mr Saunders said.
“The new multi-storey car park will be accessible for patients and visitors, but crucially it will provide more staff parking, which will free up new and existing spaces closer to the hospital’s front entrance for those needing access to health services.
This exciting milestone follows the recent opening of the 40-space street level car park in November 2021, which is providing patients and visitors with more convenient access to the hospital entry and services.
When construction of the new the multi-storey car park is completed, Dubbo Hospital will have more than 350 additional car parking spaces – significantly boosting the overall parking capacity on campus, and improving access to one of the busiest regional hospitals in NSW.
The NSW Government is delivering the Dubbo Hospital Car Park project to support the significant uplift in services as a result of Dubbo Hospital’s $276.3 million redevelopment, including the new Western Cancer Centre.
“In addition to the new car parks, the project also includes infrastructure upgrades such as roadways, footpaths, hospital access, lighting and security,” Mr Saunders said.
“This is now a world-class regional health service. The quality of doctors, nurses and specialists we’re attracting would have been inconceivable a decade ago.
Construction of the Dubbo Hospital Car Park project is on track for completion in the first half of 2022.
The NSW Government and Commonwealth Governments have invested $306.3 million in the Dubbo Hospital Redevelopment. Construction of Stage 4 of the Dubbo Hospital Redevelopment including the intensive care unit in the Macquarie Building was completed in August 2021 and is now operational.
