Since the closure of Woodside Hospital in 2006, the site has been closed to the public. As the building has languished unused for nearly 14 years , it has become dilapidated, and extensive work is required to bring it back to its former glory.

In addition to the revitalisation of Woodside House, the redevelopment will create a high quality centre for healing and wellness, with high and low care accommodation options for up to 150 residents. The facility will also include specialist palliative care, dementia care, disability, care (for people of various ages) and a range of allied health services.

Following community engagement, which will inform the planning and design, the first step in the planning process is to submit a development application.

The revitalisation of the site will involve the full restoration of Woodside House and development of state-of-the-art aged care facilities. This is a draft concept design only.
