Tamworth Hospital

The recently completed Tamworth Hospital Redevelopment Acute Services Building provides a hub for medical, surgical and other specialities in the region and includes consultancy outreach and support for chronic and complex disease management across the whole community.
Set within a rural context the new four-storey hospital involved MSJ in a strategic, urban planning solution within the spatially tight and complex site to produce a scheme that responds to the steeply falling site while allowing the campus to function during construction. The tapestry of external wall panels responds to the diverse hospital functions required on each floor and the palette of colour refers to the rustic landscape of Tamworth, the diversity of its inhabitants and its Aboriginal community.
