About our redevelopment

The Shoalhaven Hospital Redevelopment will deliver contemporary and expanded hospital services and integrated health facilities for the Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District.

The NSW Government has committed $438 million to redevelop Shoalhaven Hospital and make it the health hub for the entire region, providing the majority of emergency, critical care, acute, subacute and non-admitted services locally, reducing the need to transfer patients to Wollongong and Sydney.
