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.
In the 2017/18 Budget, the NSW Government allocated an undisclosed portion of $15 million to undertake the planning of Rouse Hill Health Service . The remaining funds would be used to do the planning of Liverpool, St George, Tumut hospitals, a staged development at Griffith hospital, as well as a state-wide mental health works capital program.
The 2018/19 NSW Budget allocated $75 million for land acquisition for the new health service facility.
The scope of the new facility is subject to detailed planning, however it will include ambulatory care and diagnostics services. 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. It is expected that the facility will be traditionally procured.
In February 2019 the NSW Government announced a site had been acquired for the new Rouse Hill Hospital. The Hospital will be built at 768 Windsor Road, close to the town centre and new Sydney Metro station.
