The new Royal Prince Alfred (RPA) HealthOne at Green Square has reached structural completion marking a significant milestone for the new facility which will provide the local community with a modern, one-stop hub for their healthcare needs.
The integrated health facility is part of the NSW Government’s $100 million HealthOne program and will provide comprehensive health services, backed by education and research, to support the health and wellbeing of the growing local community and improve patient care outside the hospital system.
The RPA HealthOne is located on Bourke Street at Zetland, close to the Green Square train station and when complete, will provide the local community with a modern, public health facility for their healthcare needs and improve patient care by integrating specialist services with primary health services.
The purpose-built facility is one of the largest HealthOne’s in NSW and will feature eight consultation rooms, six treatment rooms, a range of meeting rooms and a gymnasium for patient therapy.
It will provide a range of services focused on early intervention, health promotion and disease prevention including services that would traditionally be provided within a hospital setting at RPA, making it easier for residents to access a range of health professionals and community health care services.
Its connection to specialist clinical services at RPA Hospital will also significantly enhance access to services for the community.
Construction is expected to be completed in early 2023, prior to an operational commissioning period and opening to the community.
A $750 million redevelopment of RPA 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.
The NSW Government is investing $100 million in the HealthOne Program to improve access to primary integrated healthcare services in 20 communities across NSW, including a new HealthOne in Orchard Hills, currently in planning. An additional $20 million has also been announced for a new HealthOne at Batemans Bay to provide a modern and convenient health care hub to the Batemans Bay region.
