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 includes 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
- consolidation of community health services into a modern, integrated centre, and
- 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.
