New Mental Health Building
The Wagga Wagga Health Service Redevelopment Stage 1 included construction of new 50-bed facility for acute and sub-acute mental health services.
This delivered 30 additional mental health beds (10 acute beds and 20 sub-acute beds) and has considerably improved regional capacity to respond to community needs. You can find a Fact Sheet on the new Mental Health Unit here
The Planning Application for Stage 1 was lodged with the Department of Planning in December 2011. Approval was granted for this phase through the 3A process on the 15 of May 2012.
Stage 1 construction commenced in March 2012 and was completed in October 2013.
