Nepean Private Hospital kicks off $30m upgrade
Nepean Private Hospital has kicked off $30 million expansion project to develop a three-storey facility featuring new operating theatres and consulting suites.
The facility will be attached to the main building via multiple floors. The ground floor will include undercover car parking, with a foyer and a new cafe. Level 1 will feature four new operating theatres with expanded recovery areas, including a purpose-built pre-admission area and a sterilising department. Levels 2 and 3 will house 17 specialist consulting suites. There will also be a relocated and repurposed endoscopy suite leading up into the main operating theatres.
Nepean Private Hospital General Manager Dr Tim Sinclair said the upgrades will deliver an enhanced healthcare experience for patients and the community.
“This significant investment has been planned for some time, and it’s wonderful to see work now beginning on site. With Western Sydney’s population expected to grow by around 200,000 people over the next 10 years, this development will help meet the growth in demand for health services in the region.”
Away from the new building, other upgrades will include a refurbished hospital main entrance, while a new purpose-built space will house supplies and stores. Additional car parking and a new loading dock are also part of the project, but will be completed as part of early works.
The expansion kicked off with a smoking ceremony on the redevelopment site, attended by Bigambul man and community elder Uncle Wes and local Darug man Ian, as well as Mayor of Penrith Karen McKeown OAM.
The full expansion is expected to be completed in mid-2023.
