Planning is progressing on the redevelopment of Ryde Hospital
In 2019, the NSW Government announced a $479 million investment for the redevelopment of Ryde Hospital.
This investment will enable Ryde to have a community hospital of the future, meeting the long term needs of the local community.
The project is in the early planning phase with an options assessment underway to identify the most suitable location for the redevelopment.
The two options being considered are a redevelopment on the existing campus, or relocating the hospital to the Macquarie University North Ryde campus, following an announcement last year by the NSW Government. The university campus is six kilometres north east of the Ryde Hospital.
The assessment is being informed by clinical requirements, independent technical assessments and feedback from the community, health service staff and consumers.
The independent technical assessments will consider:
- Environmental impacts
- Social amenity
- Economic analysis
Future consultation opportunities
There will be further opportunities for the community and hospital staff to have their say and we encourage you to send us an email, so we can provide you with updates as the project progresses.
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. Visit the
NSW Health Infrastructure website to find out more.
Whether the existing hospital is redeveloped or the hospital is relocated to Macquarie University, the hospital would still be wholly publicly owned and operated by Northern Sydney Local Health District.
