Tasman Private Hospital Development

Announcing our Greenfields development in Hobart

Nexus Hospitals Press Release

Hospital and associated health services in Hobart will get a much-needed boost with the proposed construction of a new Tasman Private Hospital at 48-52 New Town Road on the site of the old WIN TV studios.

The Development Application to the Hobart City Council involving Nexus Hospitals is publicly advertised today.

At a time of unprecedented demand in Hobart for hospital services, the new facility will incorporate 6 operating theatres, and a 24 bed overnight ward.

Nexus Hospitals CEO, Andrew Petering, said the new hospital provides the opportunity for Nexus to expand the range of surgical services already being provided in its current hospital in Warneford Street, South Hobart. Nexus has served the Hobart community for the past 25 years with services in ophthalmology, plastic and reconstructive surgery, facio-maxillary surgery, ENT and dental surgery.

In a model Nexus is replicating in its 14 facilities in other states, Tasman Private will allow co-location and coordination of related health services in a world class facility, providing Tasmanians with access to a high standard of healthcare in a modern and boutique environment .

Expected to employ over 130 staff, and with an expected additional investment in Hobart exceeding $50 million, Nexus infrastructure and support services will provide a unique integrated specialised medical hub including doctors rooms, pharmacy, radiology, café, conference facilities and substantial on-site undercover parking.

The Nexus model of partnering with doctors to develop facilities tailored to meet patient requirements, supports a best practice clinical environment for doctors, and provides opportunities to attract young doctors and health professionals to Tasmania in a very competitive national health market.

Nexus Hospitals is very keen to engage fully with the community
