In March 2019, the NSW Government announced an additional $65 million for the Stage 2 redevelopment of Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital, increasing the Stage 2 investment to $265 million. The Stage 2 redevelopment will deliver a state-of-the-art hospital designed to provide the best possible health care to the local community.
This redevelopment is about providing a better experience for patients, carers, staff and visitors to Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital in a purpose-built facility that meets the needs of the community well into the future.
Stage 1 of the redevelopment - a $121 million investment - is complete. It delivered the new clinical and support services facility named the STAR (Surgery, Theatres, Anaesthetics and Recovery) building.
It included eight new operating theatres, a central sterilising service, surgical in-patient units, pathology services, kitchens and improved health information services.
In 2015, the NSW Government committed $200 million towards Stage 2 of the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital Redevelopment. The Stage 2 redevelopment will deliver a new facility that includes a refurbished and expanded Emergency Department and a new multi-storey Clinical Services Building.
The Clinical Services Building will accommodate a combined Intensive Care and High Dependency Unit, combined Respiratory/Cardiac and Coronary Care beds collocated with a Cardiac Investigations Unit, Outpatient Services, Medical Imaging, Paediatrics, Medical Assessment Unit, Transit Unit, Inpatient Units (including general medicine, stroke and dementia/delirium beds), collocated education space with the University of Sydney and retail space.
In 2019, the NSW Government announced an additional $65 million for the Stage 2 redevelopment. The increase in funding will allow for the following services:
- fit-out of two rehabilitation inpatient units
- refurbishment and increased capacity of the Psychiatric Emergency Care Centre
- expansion of Outpatient Services, including chemotherapy, renal dialysis and oral health services
- integration of Community Health Services
- a helipad.
The Stage 2 redevelopment is expected to be completed in 2021 (with the additional services above to follow).
Separate to the Stage 2 work, a new multi-storey car park has been built. The car park opened in December 2018 to members of the public, staff and visitors bringing the total number of car spaces to more than 750.
