Stage 1B of Inverell Hospital

The RCC Hunter New England team is incredibly proud to have been awarded the next stage of the Inverell Hospital Redevelopment.

In uncertain times where there is much reflection on the importance of our health care facilities and workers, we are celebrating the role we are able to play in delivering quality facilities for our hospital staff to keep our communities healthy and well. For the members of the RCC team, whose family and friends rely on this local hospital, there is a shared sense of pride in the contribution their work will make to their community, now and for future generations.

For RCC, working on critical projects which support the delivery of essential services in our local communities is an important part of what we do. We take pride in our work and the impact it has, particularly in regional and remote areas. As they approach the completion of the first stage of the Inverell Hospital upgrade, the team say their involvement in this project means so much to them and their families, beyond the opportunity to be employed to do what they love each day.

 

THE INVERELL HOSPITAL PROJECT

Stage 1a (RCC Completed 2019)

The project involves the alteration and refurbishment of the Inverell Hospital, essentially doubling the existing space and improving flexibility for staff. Facilities include:

  • Emergency Department including emergency care for children and mental health-related presentations
  • Inpatient Unit, with paediatric, maternity and birthing facilities and general adult services including palliative care
  • Medical Imaging space including identified future expansion zone
  • Operating Theatres
  • Central Sterilising Unit
  • Day Surgery Unit (increasing from 1 space up to 6)
  • Renal Dialysis unit
  • Refurbishment of main entry & admissions area
  • Mortuary
This Stage (1B)

This stage specifically entails the decanting of staff and patients from the existing hospital floorspace into the newly completed Stage 1a building, as well as the demolition, refurbishment and upgrade of the existing Inverell Hospital building into a Community Health Centre. This facility will provide additional community services for chronic disease, allied health, oral health and women and paediatric services, as well as office and education spaces.
This stage will also include new external carparking, services upgrades and CT scanner fit out.

 

THE PASSIONATE TEAM DELIVERING INVERELL HOSPITAL

Beyond the physical building, the completed Inverell Hospital facility will have a long-lasting legacy for the local Inverell community and those in the surrounding areas. We asked a few of our team to share what the project means to them:

Delivering Health Facilities to Support Regional NSW

In addition to supporting the growth of world class health care in Sydney, RCC is committed to delivering support services in regional and rural NSW.

While our head office is in Sydney, we provide localised client service with offices in Tamworth, Newcastle and Canberra. Delivering projects in regional locations is a large part of our business. On average, 30% of our projects have been delivered regionally, including major projects such as the Tamworth Hospital.

NSW Health has adapted the traditional hospital structure to reflect the changing rural and remote environments that they service.

“The NSW Rural Health Plan: Towards 2021 aims to strengthen the capacity of rural health services to provide world class connected and seamless care for people living in regional, rural and remote NSW.”

In response, RCC is leveraging our regional expertise to support NSW Health’s vision for improved infrastructure in regional and rural NSW.

Maintaining a regional presence allows us give back in local communities, whilst driving local industry participation and regional growth.

We look forward to a continued partnership with NSW Health and the local communities in which we operate.
