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 opened in 2022 and accommodates 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 allowed 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.
