  • clinical accommodation for pathology services, dialysis and central sterile services

  • a new, off-site Regional Logistics Distribution Centre (completed Jan 2024)

The redevelopment will create around 800 jobs during construction and provide a boost to the local economy.

Main works are expected to be completed in 2027.

Completed by Hansen Yuncken in January of 2024, the RLDC features an automated storage and retrieval system, efficiently selecting and transporting items to workers stationed at ergonomically designed workstations, which are then packed for distribution.

The state of the art technology will enhance the efficiency of healthcare supply and linen distribution to over 50 health providers in the region and establish a safer and contemporary work environment for health service professionals.
