Site announced for the redevelopment of Ryde Hospital
Health services will be transformed for the Ryde local community, with the existing Ryde Hospital campus to undergo a major redevelopment.
A community hospital of the future will be built on the existing Ryde Hospital campus, following a thorough site selection process including assessment of clinical requirements, hospital and community feedback alongside technical assessments from expert independent advisers.
Preserving the historic Denistone House, the $479 million investment will provide additional and enhanced emergency, critical care, community and ambulatory care (outpatient) services as well as improved landscaping, urban spaces and car parking.
Fostering new technologies to enhance the delivery of healthcare, the investment will strengthen the relationship with Macquarie University, creating a range of benefits including teaching and research opportunities alongside clinical placements.
What happens next?
Now the location has been chosen, Project User Groups will progress with hospital management and staff, as well as patient and community representatives.
The groups will work with the project team to progress the design of the redevelopment. This is a key component of the consultation process and helps determine how the clinical and non-clinical aspects of the redevelopment will be delivered.
