The contract has been awarded for the $479 million upgrade to the Ryde Hospital Redevelopment, which will provide an improved range of health services to the surrounding communities.
AW Edwards has been appointed as the building contractor for the project. Construction is expected to start in mid-2024 and will include the demolition of old buildings, construction of new hospital buildings and refurbishment of existing hospital spaces.
The New South Wales Government will work closely with the contractor to minimise construction impacts and ensure the hospital remains open throughout the redevelopment.
NSW Health will ensure staff, patients and the community continue to be informed as works progress.
New South Wales Minister for Health, Ryan Park, said that he is pleased to see the Ryde Hospital Redevelopment moving ahead and that it will transform healthcare for the local area, providing the growing community the latest facilities and models of care.
“This project will expand capacity at the hospital, delivering more adult overnight beds, plus it’ll feature a brand-new ED, ICU, operating theatres, a custom-built ambulatory care centre and a paediatric short stay unit,” Minister Park said.
“This is a major redevelopment which will provide new and enhanced services within a modern, contemporary facility to ensure patients continue to receive the best possible care.”
