​The community is being invited to have their say on the latest designs for the new Batemans Bay Community Health facility.

Minister for Regional Health Ryan Park said the Government is investing $20 million to deliver the new community health service to support communities across the Batemans Bay area. 

The new facility will be located on the existing Batemans Bay Hospital site next to the newly established Medicare Urgent Care Clinic.

Batemans Bay Community Health Service will provide improved access to a range of services, including:

  • Allied health services
  • Child, youth and family services
  • Women’s health and sexual health services
  • Community nursing, wound management and palliative care
  • Aboriginal health
  • Community mental health and drug and alcohol services.

The facility’s design has been informed by extensive feedback and consultation with health professionals, staff, patients, Aboriginal community representatives and the wider Batemans Bay community.

The artist impressions provide a more detailed look at the new facility, which includes a new building housing a range of health services, as well as carpark, landscaping, pathways and external seating areas.

The community is invited to view the designs and find out more about Batemans Bay Community Health at drop-in sessions with the project team:

  • ​Monday, 17 June, 12pm to 2pm - Village Centre, Batemans Bay 
  • Tuesday, 18 June, 12pm to 2pm - Corner of Beach Road and Edward Road, Batehaven 

Construction for the new facility will start following planning approvals and the appointment of a building contractor.

The Batemans Bay Hospital will continue to provide health care services for the community while the Batemans Bay Community Health and the new Eurobodalla Regional Hospital are being built.

Quotes attributable to Regional Health Minister Ryan Park:

“The NSW Government is committed to investing in health infrastructure to support better health outcomes for communities across the south coast.

“Batemans Bay Community Health is being planned and designed to work together with the new $260 million Eurobodalla Regional Hospital, as part of the Eurobodalla Health Service, to provide the community with greater access to care, closer to home.

“The new Eurobodalla Regional Hospital will deliver an enhanced level of health services compared to the current services delivered at the Moruya and Batemans Bay hospitals. New services such as paediatrics, intensive care unit, and an MRI will be included, strengthening health care services for the community.”

Quotes attributable to Member for Bega Dr Michael Holland:

“The new Eurobodalla Regional Hospital and the Batemans Bay Community Health Centre will be well equipped to support the health needs of the entire Eurobodalla Shire from south of Narooma to north of Batemans Bay, providing the community with access to a broader and higher level of specialist care.

​“Feedback from the community has been valuable in shaping Batemans Bay Community Health Service including creating connections to surrounding nature and green spaces, incorporating design elements identified by local Aboriginal community members, and improving accessibility for families, elderly people and people with specialist needs and abilities.”
