Clinical Services Building officially opened

Posted 17 May 2016
NSW Premier Mike Baird has officially opened the new Clinical Services Building at Blacktown Hospital, saying it was not just a project but " it was people's heart and soul."

The new Clinical Services Building at Blacktown Hospital was the centrepiece of Stage 1 and was co-designed with staff, patients, carers and community members, setting new benchmarks for consumer engagement, clinical design and innovation.

It was purpose-built to support contemporary new models of care and includes:
  • The Blacktown Cancer & Haematology Centre with a new radiation treatment service, infusion therapies centre, consultation clinics, and supportive and palliative medicine
  • Nine new wards for cancer, medical, cardiology, coronary care, respiratory, aged care, stroke and rehabilitation patients
  • Women’s Health Clinic
  • Pharmacy and pathology facilities
  • New lung and sleep centre
  • New facilities for cardiac diagnostics and cardiac rehabilitation
  • Digital innovation including outpatient kiosk check-in and wayfinding, patient journey boards, and the Paper-Lite electronic records project which transformed clinician access to patient information
  • A world-class arts and cultural program to promote health, well-being and healing.
BMDH Expansion Project Stage 1 also delivered new mental health, parking, infrastructure and facility upgrades at Blacktown Hospital and oral health, emergency and aged care & rehabilitation facilities at Mount Druitt Hospital.

The BMDH Project Stage 1 commenced in 2012 has created approximately 3,242 direct and indirect jobs. Stage 1 provided a total of 180 additional beds (170 at Blacktown Hospital and 10 at Mount Druitt Hospital).
