About Us

The multi-award winning Blacktown & Mount Druitt Hospitals (BMDH) Expansion Project is changing the way we care for our community.

It includes a major expansion of existing services and the creation of new services to meet increasing demand and reduce the need to travel out of the area for treatment.
The project also includes new clinical technology and a re-evaluation of how we’re delivering services so our facilities can support the best practices in contemporary hospital care.
BMDH Project is also recognised nationally and internationally for its outstanding consultation, engaging staff, consumers, community members, patients, carers, visitors, government, local organisations and the arts community in co-design and collaborative projects to ensure new facilities reflect the needs and values of our community.
Stage 1 2012 – 2016 delivered a new hospital building, cancer centre, mental health unit, extensive internal refurbishment, infrastructure upgrades and more parking at Blacktown Hospital. At Mount Druitt Hospital, Stage 1 included new facilities for rehabilitation, dental care, emergency, urgent care and sterilising.
Stage 2 is now underway, continuing our future service planning, and addressing the services that were not covered in Stage 1 or that require further enhancement.
Stage 2 expansion will provide better access to services for the local community by reducing the need to travel out of the area for treatment, and expanding Blacktown Hospital to become a tertiary hospital for western Sydney, in a network of services with other major hospitals.
At Blacktown Hospital, Stage 2 will create a new acute services building in front of the existing buildings with facilities for emergency (including short stay and psychiatric emergency care), intensive care, operating theatres, birthing, maternity, women’s health and newborn care. New paediatric emergency, inpatient and ambulatory care facilities will help meet the growing demand for services, as the Blacktown LGA consistently tops the state in birth rates.
An additional 420-space multi-storey car park will be completed in 2017; the acute services building will be completed in 2019;  additional refurbishment for gastroentereology and ambulatory care will be completed by 2020.
At Mount Druitt Hospital, expansion projects include a new MRI, community dialysis centre, drug health expansion, an additional operating theatre, new recovery unit and pre-admission clinic relocation. Mount Druitt projects will be completed by 2017. 

The BMDH Expansion Project is being delivered by the NSW Government’s Health Infrastructure, Western Sydney Local Health District and BMDH Health which includes Blacktown Hospital and Mount Druitt Hospital.

The project is part of the NSW Government’s commitment to:
  • Keep people healthy and out of hospital
  • Provide world class clinical services with timely access and effective infrastructure
  • Invest in critical infrastructure.
