The $790 million redevelopment of Liverpool Hospital and new multistorey car park is one step closer following the unveiling of the designs for the world-class medical, research and education precinct.
The Liverpool Health and Academic Precinct
will deliver significantly expanded and improved health services, increased bed capacity and an almost doubling of chemotherapy treatment spaces and a doubling of Neonatal Intensive Care Unit capacity.
Planning applications have now been lodged for the $740 million hospital upgrade and expansion, as well as the new $50 million carpark.
The upgrade follows a comprehensive process of planning and consultation involving Health Infrastructure, South Western Sydney Local Health District, hospital staff, local medical and emergency personnel, community groups and patients.
The Liverpool Health and Academic Precinct includes:
- About 900 beds (an increase of more than 20 per cent)
- Significant expansion in ambulatory services with almost double the number of treatment spaces for chemotherapy (from 35 to 67), as well as an increase to over 330 spaces to provide expanded clinics, treatment rooms and assessment services
- Expanded services for women and children, with 16 new birthing suites, 50 beds across the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Special Care Nursery (including a doubling of NICU capacity to 24 beds)
- Larger emergency department, intensive care unit and more theatres
- New multi-storey car park with improved pick-up and drop-off points
The next stage of the redevelopment includes reconfiguration of car parks, a new kitchen facility, retail spaces, a new mortuary, helipad upgrades and a temporary education facility and will enable hospital operations to continue when the main phase begins early next year.
Multiplex has also been announced as the successful tenderer for the next stage of early works, joining contractors Roberts Pizzarotti.
