Tweed Valley Hospital

The Tweed Valley Hospital, due for completion in 2024, is an AUD $723 million greenfield hospital development in the Tweed-Byron region. The project addresses the growing demand for healthcare in the area by delivering additional inpatient capacity, an expanded emergency department, and enhanced surgical and ambulatory services. The project is the most significant regional capital health investment by the NSW Government to date.

TSA Riley developed the project’s Gateway one and two business cases to resolve several complex project challenges, including:

  • Site selection and compulsory acquisition.
  • Detailed master planning to future-proof the site.
  • Service prioritisation and consideration of delivery staging options.
  • Service transition strategies from the existing hospital and the interim management of the existing site.

As lead health planner, TSA Riley guided the hospital’s planning framework. This included managing the development of the models of care, schedules of accommodation, functional briefs, and change management and operational readiness plans.

We assisted with procurement negotiations and drove the contract execution. During the procurement phase, our team consulted with the Local Health District and Tweed Shire Council to discuss State Signification Development approvals and modification processes due to design finalisation changes.

The new hospital will provide expanded emergency department services, operating theatres and surgical services, intensive care and rehabilitation services, increased medical and surgical bed capacity, and a boost to ambulatory care services. It will also provide surrounding communities with specialised and local health services (such as radiation oncology and cardiac catheterisation) and expanded renal services to address the increasing incidence of chronic kidney disease in the Tweed Valley.

With over 350 beds, the project includes culturally appropriate spaces to meet the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. 

The project is nearing completion, with TSA Riley managing the delivery phase. We have played a central role in managing all aspects of the delivery, from contractor engagement to completion and commissioning.

The project provides significant economic benefits to the region, with over 75% of contractors on-site from the Tweed-Byron region. The new hospital will also help attract and retain skilled health professionals and provide an embedded learning, development and research facility to support educational opportunities for staff.
