The latest designs for the $479 million Ryde Hospital redevelopment showcasing the vision for the state-of-the-art health facility have been shared with communities in the Ryde region.
The designs demonstrate connections with existing heritage buildings and the nearby Blue Gum High Forest, and include green space to create a welcoming environment for staff, patients and visitors.
Preserving the historic Denistone House and making best use of the current services already available at Ryde, the redevelopment will provide a range of new and expanded services including a state-of-art emergency department, medical imaging, operating theatres, intensive care unit and overnight inpatient beds.
The redevelopment will also provide a dedicated purpose-built ambulatory care centre and paediatric short stay unit at the hospital for the first time, as well as improved landscaping and urban spaces and a multi-storey car park.
The redevelopment team has been working closely with clinicians and the local community to inform the designs of the project.
The Ryde Hospital will be assessed under a two-staged planning approval process. The Stage 1 State Significant Development Application (SSDA), will be lodged with the Department of Planning and Environment in the coming weeks, seeking approval for the proposed scale of the redevelopment as well as site preparation and enabling construction works.
A second and more detailed SSDA application will be submitted early next year, seeking approval for the detailed design and main construction works.
The NSW Government is investing in a significant expansion of Ryde Hospital, which will transform the delivery of healthcare in Ryde and its surrounding suburbs.
