The new Community Health Centre is underway with the base structure of the building in place.

The $30 million Broken Hill Health Service Redevelopment is funded by the NSW Government and is being delivered by Health Infrastructure and the Far West NSW Local Health District.

The project includes the building of the new Community Health Centre on the corner of Crystal and Sulphide streets.

The second part of the project is the reconfiguration of the ambulatory wing at the Broken Hill Hospital.

The new integrated Community Health Centre and modernisation of the existing facilities in Broken Hill will ensure that patients have access to first-class health service facilities.

This includes a five-chair dental health facility, child, family and community health services and new Local Health District (LHD) administrative centre.

The 42 modules that form the Community Health Centre, the centrepiece of the Broken Hill Health Service redevelopment, arrived in Broken Hill from Toowoomba and have been craned into position.

Work will soon commence on the main roof structure and internal pieces of the centre.

In the coming weeks the structural steel roof framing will be positioned, ahead of the roof sheeting installation. 

Electrical, mechanical and plumbing contractors will be on site completing the installation of services. 

The facility is on track to be completed in the second half of this year with refurbishment works to follow.
