The Green Square community is one step closer to a brand-new health centre with construction of the RPA HealthOne now underway.
Delivered under the NSW Government’s $100 million HealthOne Program, and part of the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital (RPA) health network, the new facility will provide comprehensive health services, backed by education and research, to support the health and wellbeing of the local community and improve patient care by providing integration with specialist services and primary health practitioners.
The RPA HealthOne will deliver a range of services focused on early intervention, health promotion and prevention including services that would traditionally be provided in a hospital setting at RPA.
Located at 944 Bourke Street, Zetland, close to the Green Square train station, the purpose-built facility will feature eight consultation rooms, six treatment rooms, a range of meeting rooms and a gymnasium for patient therapy, along with parking for cars, bicycles and a drop off area.
Inspired by the history and heritage of the local neighbourhood, its contemporary design gives reference to the lagoon and wetland landscape that once dominated the area through its building materials and colours. It also features an enhanced landscape design with many trees retained and protected.
The new development incorporates best practice energy efficient and sustainable design initiatives that will be maintained during construction and operation, to ensure the ongoing environmental impact of RPA HealthOne is minimised.
The project is expected to be complete in early 2023.
The NSW Government is investing $100 million in the HealthOne Program that brings together a variety of healthcare providers to improve patient access to services at the local community level and increase the efficiency of the health system.
A $750 million redevelopment of Royal Prince Alfred Hospital is also underway to deliver new and upgraded facilities that will enhance existing services, support the creation of new services and expand future capacity.
