Expansion of hospital services for patients in NSW Macarthur region

Health Industry Hub | May 7, 2024 |

MedTech & Diagnostics News: Marking a historic milestone with NSW Deputy Premier Prue Car and Health Minister Ryan Park, Campbelltown Hospital officially opened the last of the major works in the $632 million Stage 2 redevelopment.

Since construction began in 2018, the redevelopment has delivered a 12-storey clinical services building, the centrepiece of the project, as well as extensive refurbishments across the hospital campus.

The new state-of-the-art building is enabling contemporary world-class care for the Macarthur region with 158,044 emergency department presentations, 9,619 surgical procedures performed, and 6,300 babies born since it opened in June 2022.

Deputy Premier Car said “Campbelltown is at the centre of one of the fastest growing regions in NSW with more than 133,000 people to call this district home with the next 12 years. This redevelopment has transformed healthcare services to meet the Macarthur community’s healthcare needs well into the future.’’

Services and buildings across the Campbelltown Hospital campus also received major refurbishments, including the expansion of the hospital’s pathology laboratory, renal dialysis unit, pharmacy, clinical information department and cancer therapy centre and a new dental centre – a first for the hospital.

Minister Park stated “Everyone involved in helping shape Campbelltown Hospital’s transformation should be immensely proud of their efforts knowing how much this means for the growing south west Sydney community.”

With more than 133,000 new residents expected to call the Macarthur region home during the next 12 years, the redevelopment is ensuring the community has access to a broader range of healthcare services close to home.

Grant Isedale, General Manager, Camden and Campbelltown Hospitals said “The completion of the Stage 2 redevelopment is an historic milestone for Campbelltown Hospital. It has given our staff, patients and community an incredible new clinical services building, which is at the cutting-edge of healthcare with new technology and innovation. The new hospital building and the many refurbishments across the campus will serve as a wonderful legacy to the Macarthur community.’’

The project follows the completion of the $134 million Stage 1 redevelopment of the hospital in 2016, and the completion of the $34.1 million car park in 2020.

The Lang Walker AO Medical Research Building, which is currently under construction, is a partnership between South Western Sydney Local Health District, Ingham Institute for Applied Medical Research, Western Sydney University and UNSW Sydney, with dedicated funding from Walker Corporation.

The new build adjoins the Western Sydney University’s Macarthur Clinical School on the hospital campus and will complement the newly redeveloped hospital and the broader Campbelltown Health and Education Precinct. The new Lang Walker AO Medical Research Building will locate medical research expertise alongside health care services.
