Design teams appointed for Canterbury Hospital’s largest upgrade in 26 years and the Blacktown and Mount Druitt Hospital redevelopment

Canterbury Hospital is a step closer to its biggest upgrade in 26 years with the appointment of the project’s lead design team.
The NSW Government’s $350 million investment in the Canterbury Hospital Redevelopment aims to expand and upgrade the facility to address the evolving health needs of the rapidly growing community in Sydney’s south-west.
Canterbury Hospital was established in 1929, with the last major upgrade in 1998, while this upgrade is set to deliver modern facilities to enhance the ability of health staff to provide top-quality care.
The design team includes Silver Thomas Hanley (Architect), Johnstaff Projects (Project Manager) and Slattery Australia (Cost Manager), who were appointed following a competitive tender process.
Over the next few months, the lead design team will collaborate with Health Infrastructure and Sydney Local Health District to identify clinical service priorities and advance the redevelopment’s planning stages.
The redevelopment is also set to create local employment opportunities in health, technology, and clinical support services.
The Canterbury Hospital redevelopment is part of the NSW Government $3 billion investment for new and upgraded hospitals and health services across greater western Sydney.   
This includes a $120 million investment for a major upgrade of Blacktown and Mount Druitt Hospital to add another 60 beds across the two facilities to meet the growing health needs of Sydney’s west. 
Planning for the project is moving ahead with the project’s lead design team appointed. 
The design team includes  Mostyn Group (Project Manager) Jacobs Group (Architect) and Altus Group (Cost Manager).
The scope and indicative timing of works for the Canterbury Hospital redevelopment and Blacktown and Mount Druitt Hospital upgrade will be finalised during the planning and design phase.
Staff, stakeholders and the community will be kept informed and consulted as the project progresses.
