Project profile: stunning new hospital takes shape
Bega has always been known for its cheese, but all of that is set to change. In a NSW first, the new South East Regional Hospital is the state’s first ever facility to be built from the ground up on a green-field site.
Located just minutes from Bega, the $160 million South East Regional Hospital will provide state-of-the-art medical facilities, and is the largest infrastructure project ever undertaken in the region. Featuring an emergency department, intensive care services, palliative care, oncology unit, renal dialysis, maternity, neonatal and paediatric units, the hospital is also a teaching facility. It has been specifically designed to take advantage of the northerly aspect on Bega River with views from every space – every ward and office has a window.
Bega brings to mind the lush green paddocks of grazing pastures, and the hospital is unique for the way that the surrounding landscape is incorporated into the building. The ability to customise colours and design was paramount to the successful delivery of the project aims and the goal was to provide a state-of-the-art facility with ease of access and navigation. Safety for staff, patients and visitors was paramount, and Acculine was tasked with the responsibility of providing a number of custom solutions to help protect the building and its occupants within the context of a busy hospital environment.
