A new report by the Regional Australia Institute and Heath Infrastructure NSW has found the value of hospitals to their communities extends far beyond healthcare.

Regional Economic Impacts of Public Hospital Investment was launched by Treasurer Dominic Perrottet and Health Minister Brad Hazzard on Wednesday 6 November 2019. 

The Report follows 3 case studies on Tamworth, Wagga Wagga and Dubbo in regard to the recent significant capital investment in the three hospitals.

Its findings include: there is a strong connection between public and private investment in healthcare; Investment in public health infrastructure leads to flow on growth in health jobs (both in hospitals and other allied health services, and in public and private sectors); and healthcare is a significant growth employment area across all skill and wage levels in Tamworth, Wagga Wagga and Dubbo and plays a key role in overall employment in these regional centres.
