Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith today announced that the first helicopter landing has taken place on top of Nepean Hospital's new 14-storey tower.

"This test landing is another exciting milestone for the $1 billion major expansion and upgrade of Nepean Hospital," said Stuart Ayres.

"The rooftop helipad will provide a fast and direct connection to Nepean Hospital's new emergency department, critical care and neonatal intensive care services."

NSW Ambulance successfully completed a day and night test landing on the rooftop helipad in preparation for the hospital tower's opening in 2022.

Construction of the Stage 1 tower is progressing well and the design and planning for Stage 2 of the redevelopment is well underway.

Stage 2 of the Nepean Redevelopment will include a new intensive care unit, in-centre renal dialysis unit, medical imaging and nuclear medicine services, cardiology services, more beds, community health services and a front of house for the hospital.

"The Nepean Hospital redevelopment is transforming our local health services for our community now and into the future and, to support the staff, doctors and nurses in delivering world class care for their patients."
