A major milestone for the NSW Government’s $265 million Stage 2 Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital redevelopment has been met with the redevelopment reaching its highest point.
Health Infrastructure’s project team joined Northern Sydney Local Health District, hospital staff, Watpac and NSW Government representatives to celebrate the occasion with a ‘topping out’ ceremony.
Marking the event a local angophora tree was craned to the top of the centrepiece of the redevelopment: a new six-storey Clinical Services Building (CSB).
The Stage 2 redevelopment includes a refurbished and expanded Emergency Department and a new Clinical Services Building.
The CSB will include:
- Combined Intensive Care and High Dependency Unit
- Combined Respiratory/Cardiac and Coronary Care beds collocated with a Cardiac Investigations Unit
- Outpatient Services
- Medical Imaging
- Medical Assessment Unit
- Transit Unit
- Inpatient Units (including general medicine, stroke and dementia/delirium beds)
- Collocated education space with the University of Sydney
- Retail space
Due for completion in 2021, Stage 2 follows on from the $121 million Stage 1
which delivered the new STAR (surgical, theatres, anaesthetics and recovery) building, as well as the new $19.8 million six-storey car park offering over 500 spaces.
The additional $65 million, announced by the NSW Government in March 2019 will allow for:
- Fit-out of two rehabilitation inpatient units
- Refurbishment and increased capacity of Psychiatric Emergency Care Centre
- Expansion of Outpatient Services, including chemotherapy, renal dialysis and oral health services
- Consolidation of community health services into a modern, integrated centre
