mount druitt hospital stage 2



We’re still growing and now Stage 2 of the Blacktown & Mount Druitt hospitals expansion project is underway.

The NSW Government recognises that our growing and ageing population, and massive expansion in Sydney’s west has fundamentally changed our community and the way we plan our health services.

Stage 2 continues our future service planning, addressing the services that were not covered in Stage 1 or that require further enhancement. 

It will provide better access to services for the local community by providing more services closer to home and reducing the need to travel out of the area for treatment.

We also need to attract and retain valuable healthcare staff by creating contemporary working environments and more opportunities for training, education and research.

 

Stage 2 at Mount Druitt Hospital

In Stage 1 at Mount Druitt Hospital, we expanded dental, emergency, and aged care and rehabilitation, improved the main entry and car parking areas, and upgraded power infrastructure and sterilising services to support our growing hospital.  

Mount Druitt will continue to grow in Stage 2, providing a centre of excellence for elective surgery in addition to existing hospital services. 

Stage 2 projects include:

  • A new community dialysis centre designed in partnership with consumer and carers, in a welcoming low-rise standalone facility with dedicated parking, opening early 2018
  • New MRI unit on level 2 which will provide a new non-invasive diagnostic service which is particularly important for our paediatric patients, now complete
  • New Recovery addition on level 2 including peri-operative support refurbishment and an additional operating room, now complete
  • New single-storey drug health expansion adjacent to the existing privately operated facility with consulting, counselling and support areas, now complete
  • Relocation of the existing pre-admission clinics to a new purpose-built facility (to allow for the expansion of the recovery ward), now complete.
