Community Walk and New Hospital Open Day

In the lead up to the opening of our new hospital on 18 January 2018, we are hosting a Community Walk and a hospital Open Day to give you a sneak peak inside the new facility.

We are thrilled to be opening our new hospital on 18 January 2018. On this same day, our current hospital located at Gibb Street Berwick will close its doors, ready for its own redevelopment and transition to a new service.

For over 100 years the Gibb Street site has provided healthcare to the community. Babies have been born, people have passed away, caregivers have built their careers, volunteers have dedicated their time within the walls of the hospital. Doctors have performed life changing and saving surgeries. To honour the past, memories and the lives which have been changed at Gibb Street, a symbolic community walk will be held on Sunday 7 January 2018, along with your first chance to see inside the new hospital.
