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. In November 2021, the NSW Government confirmed the existing Ryde Hospital campus would be redeveloped rather than relocated.
In January 2022, Health Infrastructure NSW, the project's proponent, submitted a Request for the Secretary's Environmental Assessment Requirements (SEARs) to the NSW Department of Environment and Planning, for the project's Concept Development Application.
The Concept DA sought comprises:
- A Concept Proposal for a new hospital building and associated refurbishment works of selected existing hospital facilities, including a maximum building envelope and gross floor area; and
- Stage 1 preliminary enabling works.
The Project's Detailed Development Application will be submitted at a later date.
