New Maitland Hospital

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.

Sparks & Partners worked with BVN Architects and Multiplex to deliver this state of the art facility for NSW Government Health Infrastructure and Hunter – New England Health.

The 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. New technology and innovative treatment methodologies for patient care will be considered in the design of the new facility.

Services at the new Maitland Hospital will complement the range of services provided at other area health care facilities as part of Hunter New England Health’s comprehensive clinical networks. New Maitland Hospital will provide an increased service capability and complexity to address the increasing demand being experienced across the region. The strategic priorities are:

  • Emergency services, Emergency Short Stay Unit (ESSU), and Psychiatric Emergency Care
