Off the back of our extensive regional health experience Hutchies was awarded the NSW Government’s tender to deliver the redevelopment of the Broken Hill Base Hospital and Dental Facility.

Built in 1889, Broken Hill Base Hospital is now one of New South Wales’ oldest rural referral centres servicing far west region of the state. This major renewal project included the upgrade of parts of the main hospital and construction of a new modular dental facility and Community Health Centre, in line with the Far West Local Health District’s (FWLHD) Clinical Services Plan.

The new integrated Community Health Centre has a five-chair dental health facility; child, family and community health services; and new staff offices. The upgrade to the main building reconfigured the hospital’s ambulatory care wing to expand cancer care services and consolidate waiting areas for patients. The 42 individual modular components were constructed at Hutchies’ Toowoomba Modular Yard and transported by road to site.
