Shellharbour Hospital Infromation

Shellharbour Hospital Redevelopment

Shellharbour Hospital Redevelopment

We are planning a bigger and better Shellharbour Hospital that will cater to the needs of our community now and into the future.

Update – October 2017

On Friday, 27 October Minister for Health Brad Hazzard and Parliamentary Secretary for the Illawarra Gareth Ward announced that the $251 million Shellharbour Hospital redevelopment will begin in 2018, delivering more operating theatres, a new emergency department and greatly expanded surgical services.

The NSW Government determined that the redevelopment will proceed under a Government-led approach, on the existing site. The upgrade will deliver enhanced facilities for the growing Illawarra population and will be designed, built, operated and fully funded by the Government.
