The schematic design for additional services as part of the $265 million Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital’s Stage 2 Redevelopment has been revealed.
In addition to the consolidation of community health services, the new building (as seen in the schematic design) which will connect to the main Clinical Services Building, will expand outpatient services at the hospital by providing chemotherapy services and renal dialysis for the first time.
Other services in the new building include oral health, BreastScreen and an equipment loan pool for home use of medical equipment.
The building has been designed in line with features of the main Clinical Services Building, particularly the facade elements and interior design.
The provision of additional services follows an additional $65 million to the Hornsby Stage 2 Redevelopment, bringing the total stage 2 investment to $265 million.
The new paediatric ward opened in September 2020 and the new outpatients in October. November was a busy month with the new pharmacy department opening, making Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital the first public hospital in NSW to use robotics in a pharmacy setting.
The new intensive care unit (ICU) also opened in November 2020, which is around three times the size of the previous unit.
The main clinical services building is due to open later this year.
