Hornsby Hospital has been officially opened following its $265 million redevelopment.
Minister for Health Brad Hazzard, Treasurer and Member for Hornsby, Matt Kean, and Minister for Skills and Training, Minister for Science Innovation and Technology and Member for Ku-ring-gai Alister Henskens toured the new emergency department (ED) which is three times the size of the previous ED.
Unveiling the plaque, Mr Hazzard commended staff who had to endure multiple moves to allow for the redevelopment, under the cloud of COVID-19.
“The new emergency department is three times the size of the previous ED and has purpose-built isolation rooms for patients who may be infectious, as well as a separate emergency unit for children,” Mr Hazzard said.
“The entire facility is world-class – from the entrance to the new outpatients department, intensive care unit and the first public hospital robotic pharmacy in Australia.”
