A new seven storey car park at Liverpool Hospital, featuring a striking Indigenous art installation, is now open to the community.
The multi-storey carpark is part of the NSW Government’s $790 million Liverpool Health and Academic Precinct and will provide an additional 500 parking spaces for the campus, making life easier for patients, staff and visitors.
The new car park features the largest scale artwork commissioned by NSW Health, designed by internationally acclaimed local Indigenous artist Bibi Barba.
Ms Barba said the artwork has been inspired by the rich Aboriginal history of the region.
“I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to pay tribute to the local region’s rich environmental and cultural history through my art, which involved working closely with the local Aboriginal community,” Ms Barba said.
The $790 million Liverpool Health and Academic Precinct includes integrated cancer services, expansion of critical care services, including an expanded Emergency Department, as well as enhanced maternity and paediatric services.
The new car park will support Liverpool’s first-class health, research, and education precinct, which will transform healthcare services for the rapidly growing communities of South-Western Sydney.
The artwork is part of the Arts in Health Program being delivered by Health Infrastructure in partnership with Local Health Districts, artists, and communities as part of NSW Health’s record $11.9 billion capital works program to 2025-26.
The NSW Government has invested more than $1.5 billion into four major redevelopment projects across the South Western Sydney Local Health District, with a further $1.3 billion commitment for a new Bankstown Hospital.
The NSW Government is investing a record $11.9 billion in health infrastructure over the coming four years to 2025-26 and continues its unprecedented construction of new hospitals and upgrades across NSW.
