Griffith Base Hospital's redevelopment project is closer to reality as construction works increase this weekend. This new wave of activity will change the way people access the building from August 10.
Not only construction, but people will soon be able to see the expected future-look, as the final touches are added on the concept design.
An exhibition is set to be displayed publicly in the coming months.
Murrumbidgee Local Health District (MLHD) chief executive Jill Ludford said they thanked the community for their understanding.
"We appreciate the community's patience during this period of temporary disruption," Ms Ludford said.
The main Medical Services Building is scheduled for internal refurbishments, with extensions to the Inpatient Unit set to be added.
The Intensive Care Unit will also be receiving extensions, which will cause these temporary changes to the hospital's access.
From Saturday, entry to the lower ground floor services will be through the main hospital entrance near the Emergency Department.
This arrangement is expected to be in place until around the end of September 2019.
There will be signs in place to direct people who would normally access the hospital via its lower ground floor and an internal lift will be able to transfer people between floors.
Disabled parking is available for permit holders immediately outside the Emergency Department entrance.
MLHD say patients and visitors to Griffith Base Hospital should allow additional time during this period of construction activity.
As of March, the $250 million redevelopment is "on track" for time and budget, currently progressing in two streams: the continuation of enabling works and stage two master planning and concept design.
