The $341.2 million Concord Hospital redevelopment is being delivered ahead of schedule to provide dedicated care for patients with COVID-19.
Health Infrastructure has worked in partnership with Sydney Local Health District and building contractor Roberts Co to make the building available to assist with NSW Health’s pandemic response.
Initially, wards in the hospital’s new clinical services building will open exclusively as COVID-19 wards, to ensure staff can safely care for patients.
Two-thirds of inpatient beds in the new building at Concord Hospital are in single rooms, providing more space to isolate and care for patients with COVID-19. The modern design of the wards allows for optimal line of sight to patients and additional space for staff to have breaks and shower after their shift.
Concord Hospital’s new eight-storey clinical services building is part of the NSW Government’s $341.2 million Stage 1 redevelopment delivering a major expansion and upgrade of services.
The services that were scheduled to move in to the new building will continue to operate from the existing facilities while the COVID-19 response arrangements are in place.
Construction of a new $32.4 million multistorey hospital car park is expected to begin in 2022 after the relocations are complete.
