Contruction complete on Campbelltown Hospital clinical building

Construction has wrapped up on the new 12-storey clinical services building at Campbelltown Hospital, part of the $632 million Stage 2 redevelopment.

The building will help service the more than 130,000 new residents expected to call the Macarthur region home over the next decade.

It will boost bed capacity across the hospital by more than 50 per cent as well as deliver a raft of new and expanded health services for patients.

This will include a new maternity unit, increased medical and surgical services, expanded kids’ services, as well as significantly increased mental health services.

Premier Dominic Perrottet said the investment in Campbelltown Hospital is strengthening NSW’s frontline services to deliver better services sooner and closer to home.

“The NSW Government is delivering major projects across South-West and Western Sydney to make these communities an even better place to live, work, play and raise a family,” Perrottet said.

The new 12 story clinical services building includes:

  • New state-of-the-art digital operating theatres and procedure rooms
  • A new dental and oral health department – a first for the hospital
  • Double the ICU bed capacity
  • Expanded Cancer Therapy Centre
  • Almost double the number of maternity beds
  • New and expanded surgical services, including interventional radiology
  • Significantly expanded mental health services, including a specialised older people’s unit and civil secure unit for adults

NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard said the project was part of the NSW Government’s record $10.8 billion investment in health infrastructure over the four years to 2024-25.

“This project follows completion of the $134 million first stage redevelopment of Campbelltown Hospital and the completion of the new $34 million hospital car park,” Hazzard said.

“No matter whether you look north, south, east or west across this vast State, the NSW Government is delivering more hospitals and health facilities than any other in history.

“More than 170 hospitals and health facilities since 2011, with a further 110 currently underway. It is an extraordinary achievement to support our health staff and patients.”

Around 4000 workers were on the job to support the construction for the Stage 2 redevelopment.
