The Macarthur community will have its first look at the inside of the $632 million Campbelltown Hospital redevelopment, which is on track to deliver first-class health services to the region.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian joined Health Minister Brad Hazzard to unveil the new designs today, as well as inspect the start of construction on the hospital’s $34 million multi-storey car park.
“The Campbelltown region will, for the first time, have the most modern and exciting health facilities that this community deserves,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“We are building this hospital with the future in mind – more modern wards, more treatment spaces and world-class medical and surgical services.” Mr Hazzard said Stage 2 of the Campbelltown Hospital redevelopment will include a new clinical services building that is five times bigger than the existing one.
“The NSW Liberals & Nationals Government is delivering a record hospital building boom right across the State, bringing world-class health care closer to home, including here in south west Sydney,” Mr Hazzard said.
“I want to thank all of the dedicated, hardworking hospital staff and the local community for their invaluable contributions in helping to create a truly amazing local hospital.”Once completed, the hospital will become a tertiary facility which means more complex surgeries and conditions can be managed closer to home.
The NSW Liberals & Nationals are delivering a world-class hospital for Sydney’s south west and the Macarthur region after the previous Labor Government neglected the area for 16 years. This record investment into Campbelltown Hospital is only possible thanks to the NSW Government’s strong economic management.
The $134 million first stage of the redevelopment, completed in January 2016, included a multi-storey acute services building with new inpatient wards and the $21 million Macarthur Clinical School, which opened last year.
Stage 2 of Campbelltown Hospital’s redevelopment will include:
· A new clinical services building with modern wards and patient facilities;
· A bigger emergency department with more treatment spaces;
· Enhanced medical and surgical children’s services;
· Modern centrally-located mental health units;
· State-of-the-art operating theatres and intensive care unit;
· New women’s health services, including birthing suites and maternity ward;
· Increased access to cancer, outpatient and ambulatory care services; and
· New nuclear medicine and dental services.
Construction on the main hospital building is expected to start next year.
