On 30 November Deputy Premier John Barilaro, Health Minister Brad Hazzard and Member for Manly James Griffin visited the site where the unique youth hospice will be built.
"The hospice will be surrounded by bushland and overlooking Sydney Harbour, providing a peaceful setting for young people and their families during extremely difficult times," Mr Barilaro said.
"The centre will provide teenagers and young adults with short-term respite care and specialised palliative care, as well as bereavement support and counselling for their families, seven days a week."
Mr Hazzard said the hospice for 15 to 24-year-old patients will support families across NSW during the most challenging of circumstances.
"As these young people and their families face the unimaginable, providing appropriate end-of-life care is so important for their physical and emotional wellbeing," Mr Hazzard said.
Member for Manly James Griffin said the $19.5 million Manly Adolescent and Young Adult Hospice has been designed with privacy, respite and recreation at its core.
