Design for new Sydney RPA Hospital revealed

The NSW Government has unveiled designs for the new $750 million Royal Prince Alfred (RPA) Hospital in Sydney.

NSW Premier, Dominic Perrottet said the investment will deliver state-of-the-art health facilities in a new building, as well as upgrades to existing spaces.

“This is the most significant investment in RPA’s 140-year history and will support excellent health care for the 700,000 people who live in Sydney Local Health District and the more than 1 million people who visit it for work, study or to see loved ones,” Mr Perrottet said.

Health Minister, Brad Hazzard said the new hospital was fast-tracked as part of the State Government’s COVID-19 Recovery Plan and will be delivered a year ahead of schedule.

“Importantly, Health Infrastructure has consulted extensively with clinicians, staff, patients, consumers and the local community, to ensure the redevelopment meets the healthcare needs of the rapidly growing area both now and in the future,” Mr Hazzard said.

“Now is the opportunity to have a say in the final design for one of Australia’s leading hospitals, renowned for its excellence in providing innovative health care and education.”

The designs will be exhibited at a series of community presentations and pop-up stalls.

Bates Smart, Neeson Murcutt + Neille won a competition to design the new hospital and have been incorporated into the project to work alongside Jacobs, the lead architect for the redevelopment.

Following further consultation and design development, the plans will be lodged with the NSW Department of Planning and Environment via a State Significant Development Application.
