Construction completed on Campbelltown Hospital’s new $632M clinical services building

Construction of the new 12-storey clinical services building at Campbelltown Hospital, the centrepiece of the $632 million Stage 2 redevelopment, is now complete.

Premier Dominic Perrottet, Health Minister Brad Hazzard, Member for Holsworthy Melanie Gibbons and Member for Camden Peter Sidgreaves today toured the new building, which is undergoing final touches in readiness for its 12-week commissioning period, which will further boost first-class healthcare facilities in South-West Sydney.

“This major investment in Campbelltown Hospital is strengthening our frontline services to deliver better services sooner and closer to home,” Mr Perrottet said.

“Our record investment in our health system is ensuring we are building what matters to make daily life better so people have access to the healthcare they need.

“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.”

The state-of-the-art 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.

Mr 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,” Mr 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.”

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 (as well as an almost 60 per cent increase in the special care nursery and 50 per cent increase in birthing suites);
  • New and expanded surgical services, including interventional radiology; and
  • Significantly expanded mental health services, including a specialised older people’s unit and civil secure unit for adults.

Member for Holsworthy Melanie Gibbons said the project was part of the NSW Government’s record investment in South West Sydney’s public hospitals.

“This redevelopment will transform local healthcare and ensure people living in and moving into the fastest growing region in our state have better access to a broad range of key health services, closer to home,” Ms Gibbons said.

Member for Camden Peter Sidgreaves welcomed the expansion of key medical services, including those for children and women, mental health, and the care of older members of the community.

“I am incredibly pleased that this redevelopment will not only cater to the needs of our community for years to come, but has also seen the involvement of around 4,000 workers over the life of the project,” Mr Sidgreaves said.

A community open day will be held on Saturday 4 June, offering locals a behind-the-scenes tour of the new building before it opens to patients.
