$790M NEW LIVERPOOL HOSPITAL UNVEILED

World-class medical precinct a step closer
THE $790M redevelopment of Liverpool Hospital is one step closer with the unveiling of the designs for the world-class medical, research and education precinct.

Health Minister Brad Hazzard thanked the hospital staff and community who contributed to the extensive consultation that has helped shape the project.

“This is a major milestone in delivering a medical, research and education hub of excellence to the communities of South Western Sydney,” Mr Hazzard said.

“The Liverpool Health and Academic Precinct will deliver significantly expanded and improved health services, with about 200 more beds than previously, an almost doubling of chemotherapy treatment spaces and a doubling of Neonatal Intensive Care Unit capacity.

“The NSW Government is continuing its record health infrastructure program, with $10.1 billion in the pipeline over this term, on top of $10B already spent, boosting jobs and local economies across the state.”

The planning applications have now been lodged for the $740M hospital upgrade and expansion, as well as the new $50M carpark.

It follows a comprehensive process of planning and consultation involving Health Infrastructure, South Western Sydney Local Health District, hospital staff, local medical and emergency personnel, community groups and patients.

Multiplex has also been announced as the successful tenderer for the next stage of early works, joining contractors Roberts Pizzarotti.

Melanie Gibbons, Member for Holsworthy said the Liverpool Hospital redevelopment will boost the local economy and meet growing health care needs.

“This next stage includes reconfiguration of car parks, a new kitchen facility, retail spaces, a new mortuary, helipad upgrades and a temporary education facility and will enable hospital operations to continue when the main phase begins early next year.”

The Liverpool Health and Academic Precinct includes:

• About 900 beds (an increase of more than 20 per cent).
 
• Significant expansion in ambulatory services with almost double the number of treatment spaces for chemotherapy (from 35 to 67), as well as an increase to over 330 spaces to provide expanded clinics, treatment rooms and assessment services.
 
• Expanded services for women and children, with 16 new birthing suites, 50 beds across the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Special Care Nursery (including a doubling of NICU capacity to 24 beds).
 
• Larger emergency department, intensive care unit and more theatres.
 
  • New multi-storey car park with improved pick-up and drop-off points
