Prior to the 2019 NSW State Election, the NSW Government committed $479 million to redeveloping the existing Ryde Hospital. The proposed redevelopment intends to preserve the existing historic Denistone House, and provide additional and enhanced emergency, critical care, inpatient, community and ambulatory care services, and maternity services.
In December 2020, the NSW Government announced it would consider a proposal to relocate Ryde Hospital to the Macquarie University campus as part of a range of options in the business case for the project. The proposal would see the University provide the land for the new hospital for free, meaning the project's cost would remain the same. The hospital would continue to be government-owned and operated by the Northern Sydney Local Health District.
Planning and construction for the redevelopment is scheduled to commence by FY2022-23.
