At Blacktown Hospital, Stage 2 will create a new hospital building in front of the existing buildings and new facilities for:
There will also be a new 420-space multi-storey car park, a new covered link into the hospital, a new hospital entry from Panorama Parade and other road improvements to create a more welcoming and easier-to-navigate hospital campus.
On completion, there will be a total of 1700 car spaces on site.
Many services currently located in the original hospital building (facing Blacktown Road) will move to the new acute services building.
When they relocate, the original building will be refurbished for endoscopy, gastroenterology, and more outpatient clinics.
The final configuration at Blacktown will be three major blocks, clustered around a central atrium entry providing a visual and physical connection between the buildings.
While planning for the major development is underway, we are starting early works to clear the space and upgrade infrastructure, ready for our high-tech new facilities.
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 standalone, purpose-built community dialysis centre will be constructed at Mount Druitt Hospital to meet the increasing demand for local dialysis services. It will significantly reduce the need to travel out of the area for treatment. The centre will be domestic in scale, with natural light, comfortable treatment areas and dedicated parking. The centre has been planned with the help of patients and families to create a warm and welcoming environment.
