Shellharbour Hospital Redevelopment

Announcement of Commencement of EOI Process

Shellharbour Hospital is one of five initial locations selected for the NSW Government’s hospital partnership program.

The NSW Government is seeking to establish a partnership with non-government hospital operators to provide sustainable public health services to the local community.

The program will bring the expertise and the resources of the public and non-government sectors together to deliver high quality care to patients, carers and their families now and into the future.

What is happening?

Expressions of interest (EOI) are invited from experienced hospital operators to provide health services to public patients at Shellharbour Hospital.

This represents the first stage of a potential procurement process. If proposals do not meet the expectations of the NSW Government, a traditional approach will be adopted to ensure the delivery of Shellharbour Hospital in accordance with the 2015 election commitment.

What are the benefits?

Partnering with a non-government hospital operator means infrastructure and service costs will be shared with the hospital operator, enabling high-quality care to be delivered at a reduced cost to the taxpayer.

The community will benefit from greater choice and a broader range of health services which respond to community needs over time.

As a public patient you will be able to use the new hospital, including the Emergency Department, in exactly the same way that you currently use your public hospital now.
