Cowra Hospital Schematic Design

The schematic designs for the Cowra Hospital Redevelopment have been unveiled for the new purpose-built health facility for the Cowra community.
The Cowra Hospital redevelopment will be built on the existing site and provide modernised health services and facilities for patients, staff and the community. The design incorporates the feedback from staff and the community informing the hospital’s two-level design, as well as improve access and onsite parking, new landscaped areas and enhanced access to district views from the hospital.
