The New Year means a new main entry to Wagga Wagga Base Hospital as part of the third and final stage of the $431 million Wagga Wagga Health Service (WWHS) Redevelopment.
The entry in the Health Services Hub (Stage 3 building) opens at 7am, Monday 1 February along with an internal ground floor corridor, known as Hospital Street, to Wagga Wagga Base Hospital and a new retail space.
Patients, visitors and staff must continue to undergo a COVID-19 screening and temperature check at the single main entry point through the new Health Services Hub..
The Stage 3 entry opening coincides with:
  • re-opening of the main entry/forecourt car park
  • opening of new drop-off zones parallel to the new Stage 3 building
  • opening of internal corridor called Hospital Street
  • opening of new ground floor toilet and parent room facilities.
  • relocation of WHSmith’s Fresh + café to a new retail space from 6am Wednesday 3 February.
Work continues throughout the six-floor building including construction of a new multi faith room, landscaping and other minor works for completion of construction.  
The building completion and operational commissioning, including the relocation of approximately 400 staff and 60 health services from 12 separate sites, are scheduled for early this year. You can find frequently asked questions on the operational commissioning here.
Further information on the WWHS Redevelopment is available here.
Late last year, a development application was lodged with Wagga Wagga City Council for the $30 million multi storey car park project on the health campus. Find out more here.
