The New South Wales Government has committed $300 million towards the construction of a new health service at Rouse Hill in North West Sydney - forming part of a broader $1 billion commitment to improve health infrastructure in the State. The new Rouse Hill Health Service will be paid for with money from the Rebuilding NSW fund, which is sourced from the lease of the State's electricity assets.
The new hospital will include:
- Urgent and Emergency Care
- Day Surgery Unit
- Adult & Paediatric Short Stay
- Ambulatory & Outpatient Care which includes Women’s Health, Ante/Post Natal Care, Cancer Care, Renal Dialysis, Mental Health, Infusion Centre and Paediatrics
- Prehabilitation, Rehabilitation & Lifestyle Medicine Service
- Multi-storey car park.
The health service facility will be networked to and operationally integrated with Blacktown and Westmead hospitals.
The Rouse Hill Health Service was included in NSW Infrastructure Pipeline, released in July 2018.
