Development of Culture & Arts program for Forbes and Parkes Hospitals, in partnership with Lachlan Health Service.

The Lachlan Health Services Project team engaged Arts OutWest to integrate culture and arts into the Forbes and Parkes Hospital redevelopments. The NSW Government provided $113.7 million to redevelop the Forbes Hospital and build a new Parkes Hospital. A component of this funding was used to help deliver the Lachlan Health Service Culture and Arts program.
