Nepean Hospital, located in Penrith in Sydney's west, will receive a $550 million upgrade. The NSW Government announced in November 2016 that the Nepean Hospital redevelopment will include a new clinical services block, a new and expanded Emergency Department, at least 12 new operating theatres, a new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and a helipad. A further $26 million has been allocated to build a new multi-storey car park for the hospital.
Nepean Hospital is one of NSW’s busiest hospitals, located in one of Sydney's fastest growing regions. The population of Western Sydney is due to grow significantly in the next 20 years, and the newly redeveloped Nepean Hospital will service this growing population.
The development application process was initiated in September 2017 for the new clinical tower building, with the Environmental Assessment Requirements lodged with the Department of Planning. It is expected that the project will also be classified as state significant development.
CPB Contractors have been awarded the early contractor tender for stage 1. Stage 1 includes:
- a new clinical services block;
- 12 new operating theatres;
- doubling the capacity of medical oncology;
- a new and expanded emergency department;
- more than 200 beds in new accommodation;
- a new neonatal intensive care unit;
- new community health services; and
- 18 birthing suites in new accommodation (an increase of 10).
Stage 1 interim works have already commenced, and include the expansion of the medical oncology services and upgrading the emergency department. Construction of the new clinical services block will commence in 2018 and the new building will become operational in 2021.
Additionally, demolition works began in October 2017 to make way for the new multi-storey carpark, which is scheduled for completion in early 2019.
