The Herbert Smith Precinct is a proposal to redevelop part of the Royal North Shore Hospital (RNSH) campus in St Leonards, Sydney. The proposed redevelopment would cover an area of 2.27 hectares on the southern end of the 13 hectare hospital site.

  • new and enhanced public open spaces 
  • short stay accommodation for patients and carers
