The Concord Hospital Redevelopment is here.

In June 2017 the NSW Government announced $341.2 million in funding to deliver the Concord Hospital Redevelopment Stage 1. 

The Stage 1 project will build on the hospital’s history and architectural significance to deliver a state-of-the-art clinical services building to care for our growing local community.

Stage 1 will increase the hospital’s inpatient and outpatient capacity and deliver:

  • Rusty Priest Centre for Rehabilitation and Aged Care – including ambulatory clinics, assessment and therapy areas, rehab gyms and psychogeriatric medicine
  • Comprehensive cancer centre – additional capacity for day and inpatient oncology services
  • Australia’s first National Centre for Veterans' Healthcare to support the health and wellbeing of veterans’ and their families.

Sydney Local Health District and Health Infrastructure are working in partnership to deliver the project with ongoing consultation with clinicians, staff, patients and the community in planning for the redevelopment. 

The Stage 1 project will also allow for:

  • Enhancement and integration of clinical research
  • Improved access and hospital entries with new dedicated patient drop-off zones
  • A new atrium with retail opportunities to link the existing hospital multi-block with the new building
  • Improvement to the hospital’s logistics systems with a new loading dock.
  • Demolition of the existing World War II ramp wards, providing a future development zone.

Enabling works for Stage 1 began in 2017, relocating services out of the buildings to be demolished, with the project expected to be complete in 2021.
