Project Overview

The NSW Government has invested $470 million in delivering the new Maitland Hospital, to meet the growing health service needs for the surrounding communities of the Hunter Valley now and into the future.

The new Maitland Hospital will provide the infrastructure required to respond to the anticipated growth in the Maitland region. 

The new Maitland Hospital project is a major opportunity to embrace technology and innovation, with the aim of creating new ways of working, improved performance and better health outcomes.
