The new Sutherland Hospital Operating Theatre Complex
has officially opened, delivering contemporary healthcare for the growing Sutherland Shire and surrounding communities.
The project significantly expands Sutherland Hospital’s capacity to meet surgical care needs and is a combination of new build and refurbishment, with eight new operating theatres, two procedure rooms and a new surgical short stay unit.
Since 1958, Sutherland Hospital has been an important part of the Shire community, and the new facilities ensure its continued legacy of care.
These improvements have already started making a positive difference to patients, with the new operating theatres, post-anaesthesia care unit, and surgical short stay unit opened to patients last month.
The NSW Government invested $81.5 million to redevelop the Sutherland Hospital Operating Theatre Complex, along with an extra $7 million for a new MRI service, reducing the need to transfer up to 800 inpatients each year for scans.
