The multi-storey Acute Services building - which is the centrepiece of the redevelopment - is on target for construction completion in December.
The NSW Government also announced an extra $9million for the hospital’s Clinical School as part of the State Budget.
While inspecting the redevelopment, NSW Health Minister Jillian Skinner said that the pace of the redevelopment was inspiring.
“No one can be in any doubt that Campbelltown Hospital has fine staff, but the future needs of this fast-growing population demand a world class environment in which our clinicians can deliver care,” she said.
On completion, the stage 1 redevelopment will comprise:
- An additional 90 inpatient beds, with capacity for a further 30.
- An expanded emergency department.
- A paediatric outpatients unit.
- Four birthing rooms.
- Two cardiac catheterisation laboratory/interventional suites.
- A co-located and expanded floor comprising ambulatory care, outpatients, antenatal, allied health consulting rooms and treatment spaces.
- Relocation and expansion of supporting space for pathology and clinical information.
- An additional 248 car spaces, including 37 new spaces serving ambulatory care and cancer therapy services, and 110 car spaces in the south-west corner of the campus, bringing the total number of car spaces at the hospital to 1,225.
Planning for stage 2 of the redevelopment has begun, which will prioritise imaging services and further expansion of the acute hospital, including the emergency department, theatres, inpatient beds and cancer services.
