New healthcare centre for inner Sydney communities
People living in inner Sydney will soon have access to more healthcare specialists and services in a new Royal Prince Alfred HealthOne at Green Square, with the structure now complete as part of the NSW Government’s $100 million program.
Premier Dominic Perrottet said the new state-of-the-art centre was the largest in the state, and would provide vital out-of-hospital healthcare services for families and residents.
“This new Green Square facility is a one-stop-shop giving people access to a range of healthcare services without having to visit a hospital, providing more options and helping take the pressure off our emergency departments,” Mr Perrottet said.
“The innovative statewide HealthOne program is boosting healthcare options for people and is part of the NSW Government’s comprehensive investment in our health system to deliver better services closer to home across NSW.”
The RPA HealthOne centre will feature eight consultation rooms, six treatment rooms, a range of meeting rooms and a gymnasium for patient therapy.
Health Minister Brad Hazzard said the HealthOne would be closely connected to clinical services at the RPA Hospital, significantly boosting the range of healthcare professionals and services available for the community as well as improving access and efficiency.
“This first-class RPA HealthOne will really take healthcare in inner Sydney to another level, providing specialist services focused on early intervention and disease prevention, backed by education and research, and co-located with primary health services such as GPs,” Mr Hazzard said.
“Our investment in these world-class health services is ensuring the exceptional patient and family-centred care the RPA has long been renowned for will continue to meet the community’s healthcare needs well into the future.”
The new RPA HealthOne centre is due to be completed in early 2023, and will open after the commissioning period. It complements the $750 million Royal Prince Alfred Hospital redevelopment, which will deliver new and upgraded facilities that will enhance existing services, support the creation of new services and expand future capacity.
