The new 151 bed hospital will offer a full range of medical, surgical and maternity services for people in the Illawarra, in a beautiful facility overlooking the Wollongong landscape and coastline.”

Medibank Executive General Manager of Provider Networks and Integrated Care, Dr Andrew Wilson said: "we have negotiated an agreement with Ramsay Health Care that is in the best interests of our members and patients. Our members in Wollongong and the broader South Coast region will now be able to access the new hospital with confidence and certainty about their care.”
