Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith and Tanya Davies MP, Member for Mulgoa are inviting community members to participate in the planning and design of Stage 2 of the $1 billion Nepean Hospital Redevelopment, which includes a transformation of hospital and community-based health services.

The “register your interest” campaign will run for two months before feedback sessions start in February 2021.

Stage 2 of the Nepean Redevelopment, which is funded by the NSW Government, will include a new intensive care unit, cardiology services, in-centre renal dialysis unit, medical imaging and nuclear medicine services, more beds, staff education and training facilities, community health services and a new front of house for the hospital.

Stuart Ayres said Community input into the design of the Nepean Redevelopment will ensure the new facilities are patient-centred, welcoming and suit the unique needs of people in this area.

“Construction for Stage 2 is being fully integrated with the Stage 1 tower and is due to commence in 2022 when construction on Stage 1 is complete in late 2021.”

Tanya Davies said stage 2 community participation follows on from the successful community feedback roadshow for Stage 1, which captured more than 1,200 comments from people in Western Sydney and the Blue Mountains.

“When complete, the Nepean Redevelopment Stage 1 and 2 will future-proof world-class health care in the region for decades to come.”

Stage 1 construction, which is well underway, includes a new 14-storey hospital tower featuring a new Emergency Department, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, operating theatres, birthing services and more than 200 inpatient beds.

In addition to the new tower, the following works have also been completed at Nepean Hospital as part of Stage 1:

  • A new multi-storey car park with rooftop helipad (opened July 2019).
  • Expansion of services at Nepean Cancer Care Centre (opened August 2019).
  • New childcare centre on campus (opened in June 2020)
