The Tasmanian Government has committed to the next stages of the Launceston General Hospital (LGH) redevelopment with a $580 million major investment over 10 years to meet future demand.

A Masterplan has been developed to guide the redevelopment of the LGH precinct.

In developing the Masterplan, we have considered current and future demand pressures, service growth projections, asset condition reports and what we have heard from the community, staff, and other service providers. The draft LGH Masterplan is now ready for consultation.

The draft Masterplan and proposed staged developments was released for community consultation in May 2021.  Community consultation has now closed with the feedback and information received being collated and reviewed to inform  the development of the final Masterplan.
