NSW Health – Cobar Health Service including Lilliane Brady Village

New health service in far western New South Wales co-located adjacent to expanded aged care service

The Multipurpose Service (MPS) model of care is specifically designed for regional and remote communities to provide coordinated delivery of health and aged care services.

The project at Cobar delivered a new Health Service co-located adjacent to the existing aged care services (Lilliane Brady Village) owned by Cobar Shire Council.

The new health facility will provide inpatient beds, an emergency treatment bay, medical imaging, and community and allied health spaces.

Following our health planning advice, major extensions to Lilliane Brady Village were deemed necessary.

The existing building was extended at both ends, adding 14 new bedrooms, lounge areas, and a chapel. Additionally, two 4-bed rooms were refurbished into four single bed rooms with ensuites to improve the residents’ quality of life.

Additionally, four staff accommodation units will be located on site, with provision for visiting services such as mobile breast screening.

The building’s design and materials have been selected to cope with high diurnal temperatures (often 450C).
