Nepean Hospital, located in Penrith in Sydney's west, will receive a $550 million upgrade as Stage 1 of the Nepean Hospital Redevelopment. The NSW Government announced the project in November 2016.

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;
- a helipad;
- new community health services; and
- 18 birthing suites in new accommodation (an increase of 10).

A further $26 million has been allocated to build a new multi-storey car park for the hospital.

The State Significant Development application process was initiated in September 2017 for Stage 1, with the Secretary's Environmental Assessment Requirements issued in November 2017. The project is now preparing the Environmental Impact Statement, which will then be released for public consultation. In November 2018, the schematic design for the new 14-storey clinical block was released. 

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 2019 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.
