The first sod has been turned marking the start of construction on a new six storey hospital tower being delivered as part of the Liverpool Health and Academic Precinct, one of the state’s largest hospital redevelopment projects.
To support education and employment opportunities for local workers during construction and beyond, project builder Lendlease has opened a new skilling and employment hub next to the hospital site.
Working in partnership with NSW Health, NSW TAFE and Liverpool City Council, the hub will offer a range of construction pre-employment programs for workers. It will also offer Aboriginal employment initiatives and support people of all ages to acquire new skills for construction and health-related roles.
The redevelopment will transform healthcare services for south-west Sydney and will support around 850 construction jobs, with the potential for thousands of jobs over the project’s life.
The redevelopment will include a new integrated cancer centre, an expanded emergency department, a new and larger neonatal intensive care unit and six new in-patient units including paediatric, maternity and women’s health services – all designed to cater to the area’s growing population.
