Construction of the new 12 storey clinical services building at Campbelltown Hospital, the centrepiece of the $632 million Stage 2 redevelopment, is now officially complete.
Complete to the point it received a visit this morning from the NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet and the health minister Brad Hazzard.
Also there were two government backbenchers, the state members for Camden and Holsworthy, Peter Sidgreaves and Melanie Gibbons.
They toured the new building, which is undergoing final touches in readiness for its 12-week commissioning period.
“This major investment in Campbelltown Hospital is strengthening our frontline services to deliver better services sooner and closer to home,” Mr Perrottet said.
The state of the art building will help service the more than 130,000 new residents expected to call the Macarthur region home over the next decade.
It will boost bed capacity across the hospital by more than 50 per cent as well as deliver a raft of new and expanded health services for patients.
This will include a new maternity unit, increased medical and surgical services, expanded children’s services, as well as significantly increased mental health services.
The new 12 storey clinical services building includes:
- New state of the art digital operating theatres and procedure rooms;
- A new dental and oral health department – a first for the hospital;
- Double the ICU bed capacity;
- Expanded Cancer Therapy Centre;
- Almost double the number of maternity beds (as well as an almost 60 per cent increase in the special care nursery and 50 per cent increase in birthing suites);
- New and expanded surgical services, including interventional radiology;
- Significantly expanded mental health services, including a specialised older people’s unit and civil secure unit for adults.
Mr Sidgreaves welcomed the expansion of key medical services, including those for children and women, mental health, and the care of older members of the community.
“I am incredibly pleased that this redevelopment will not only cater to the needs of our community for years to come, but has also seen the involvement of around 4,000 workers over the life of the project,” Mr Sidgreaves said.
A community open day will be held on Saturday 4 June, offering locals a behind-the-scenes tour of the new building before it opens to patients.
