The $450 million new Maitland Hospital is being built to accommodate the increasing health needs of the growing city of Maitland and the surrounding Hunter Valley region. The hospital will be both the rural referral hospital for the Hunter Valley and the major district hospital for local residents of the Lower Hunter.
The range of services at the new hospital will include emergency care, surgical care, acute care, maternity care, paediatric care, inpatient medical and surgical beds, rehabilitation, mental health, palliative care, chemotherapy and ambulatory care.
Maitland was one of five initial locations selected for the NSW Government's regional hospitals partnerships programme.
Under the partnership plan, the successful private operators would redevelop the hospitals and then run them on behalf of the NSW Government for a fixed term.
EOIs for the development of Maitland Hospital closed in late 2016, after sufficient interest from the private sector. However, in July 2017, the Government announced that only not-for-profit organisations will be able to participate in the current request for proposal stage to build and run the hospital.
Due to change in policy, the Government is now seeking non-for-profit operators to deliver redevelopments of not only Maitland but also Shellharbour hospital. Further, Bowral, Goulburn and Wyong hospitals will be redeveloped via traditional procurement.
The $1 billion regional hospital redevelopments were first committed to at the NSW 2015 State election.
