New Blacktown Hospital: Have your say
SHARE

Posted 28 Jul 2016

The NSW Government is inviting the community to have their say about the new hospital building at Blacktown.

The new building will provide additional facilities for emergency, operating theatres,  intensive care, birthing, maternity, women’s health, newborn care, paediatrics and other services.

Planning is also underway for expansion at Mount Druitt Hospital and more car parking at Blacktown.

Blacktown & Mount Druitt hospitals’ general manager Sue Anne Redmond said this was exciting time for the people of Blacktown.

“Just this year we unveiled stage one of our expansion project. Our clinical services building is a dream come true for staff and the community, and now our services are expanding even more with stage 2 of the redevelopment,” she said.

“Our dedicated staff deserve the very best possible facilities to provide quality healthcare.

“This expansion will provide more services locally and reduce the need for people to travel out of the area for treatment. It will also help us attract high quality healthcare staff and create better working environments and more opportunities for training, education and research.  

“The future is very bright for Blacktown.”

The Stage 2 expansion will increase the amount of beds at the hospital and will include:

  • a new emergency department
  • an intensive care unit
  • operating theatres
  • birthing, maternity, women's health and newborn care
  • paediatrics.
A new multi-storey car park will also be constructed as part of this stage of expansion and will provide another 420 car spaces on site.

Expansion projects for Mount Druitt Hospital are also underway.
