Concord Hospital reaches its highest point

Thursday 8 October 2020

The $341 million Concord Hospital Redevelopment celebrated a major milestone, with a traditional topping out ceremony for the new eight-storey Clinical Services Building reaching its full height.

The design of the new building will improve the healthcare experience for both patients and carers, with more than two-thirds of the new inpatient beds to be single patient rooms, many with daybeds to allow a carer to stay for extended periods.

The redevelopment of Concord Hospital will also deliver:
  • Australia’s first National Centre for Veterans’ Healthcare to support veterans and their families in an outpatient setting
  • the Rusty Priest Centre for Rehabilitation and Aged Care, which includes ambulatory care clinics, therapy areas and rehabilitation gyms
  • a comprehensive Cancer Care Centre, which will have additional capacity for day and inpatient cancer services
  • a new atrium that will link the new building to the existing hospital, providing direct access to operating theatres, radiology and emergency care.
Construction of a new multistorey car park for Concord Hospital will begin following the completion of the redevelopment, expected in late 2021.
