Major Works Commence on New Nepean Hospital Tower
This is the first of eight sectional pours that will form the ground floor slab of the tower.
“Once complete, this new tower will include an expanded emergency department, 18 birthing suites, a neo-natal Intensive Care Unit, more than 12 operating theatres and more than 200 additional beds,” said Stuart Ayres
“The new multi-story car park opened earlier this year, construction of the new childcare centre is underway and the upgraded Nepean Cancer Care Centre opened up on 16 September,” added Stuart Ayres.
The upgraded Nepean Cancer Care Centre includes a new chemotherapy day ward and third radiation therapy bunker.
The NSW Government committed $576 million for Stage 1, which includes the new hospital tower, multi-storey car park, rooftop helipad and an interim expansion of services at Nepean Cancer Care Centre.
“We made a promise to upgrade Nepean Hospital to cater for our growing community and we are delivering on that promise,” added Stuart Ayres.
In 2018, the Government allocated a further $450 million for Stage 2 to continue the transformation of the Nepean Hospital and community-based health services.
Construction for the new tower is scheduled for completion in 2021 and Stage 2 will commence in 2022.
