About the Ryde Hospital Redevelopment​

The Ryde Hospital Redevelopment will transform the delivery of healthcare for the Ryde local community, ensuring people can get the care they need close to home. The Ryde Hospital Redevelopment will provide new and enhanced health facilities and services, while making the best use of the current services available at the Ryde campus, including the Graythwaite Rehabilitation Centre.

The latest designs showcase the connections with existing onsite heritage buildings such as Denistone House, the Stables, and the nearby Blue Gum High Forest, as well as the inclusion of green spaces to create a welcoming environment for staff, patients, and visitors.

Early works for the project started in February 2023, with HPAC Pty Ltd appointed as the contractor. Early works are the preliminary works carried out on the site, in preparation for the main works, set to begin late 2023.
When completed the Ryde Hospital Redevelopment will deliver new and expanded services will include:
  • a new and expanded emergency department
  • a new and expanded medical imaging department
  • a new and expanded intensive care unit
  • new operating theatres
  • more adult overnight inpatient beds
  • a new purpose-built ambulatory care centre
  • a new paediatric short stay unit ​
  • improved public domain and urban spaces, landscaping and car parking.


How to build a hospital

​Hospital planning is a complex process that involves extensive consultation with staff, patients, consumers and the community to ensure the right clinical needs are met. Community input into the planning, design and delivery of the Ryde Hospital Redevelopment is essential in creating a welcoming facility that meets the health needs of the community well into the future. The project team will continue to provide the opportunity for the community to have its say as the project progresses.
