Unveiling of Plans for the $479 Million Ryde Hospital Renovation
The plans for the rebuilding of Ryde Hospital, which will significantly modernize and expand services to satisfy the health requirements of the Ryde region's residents, have been unveiled by NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet.
Health Infrastructure NSW hired Silver Thomas Hanley (STH) to complete the multi-stage hospital renovations for the Northern Sydney Local Health District.
Perrottet stated that the $479 million renovation will considerably increase the local community's access to healthcare by enabling more individuals to receive high-quality care close to home.
The improvements include new theaters, a purpose-built ambulatory care center, a new paediatric short stay facility, and enhanced medical imaging in addition to a new and expanded emergency department and intensive care unit.
Victor Dominello, a member representing Ryde, remarked that after intensive community involvement, the designs reflect a significant number of community ideas. In order to provide a pleasant environment for patients, workers, and visitors, Dominello claimed that major design elements like heritage, the environment, and green space have been influenced by input.
The concept design has taken into account important topics brought up by respondents, such as a connection to the Blue Gum High Forest, connectivity with public transportation, and the provision of green space and landscaping. A key component of the concept is the retention and restoration of nearby heritage structures like Denistone House and The Stables.
The redevelopment's early-works contractor has been selected as HPAC, and construction is set to start soon. Three buildings at the property's rear will be demolished, along with other basic site preparation earthworks, as part of the first phase of the redevelopment. The main work is anticipated to start in late 2023.
Up to February 2nd, the government is looking for community input on the concept design.
STH is moving on with the project's detailed design phase, and in mid-2023, a final state significant development application will be made in order to get approval for the project's final designs and major construction work.
The project is a component of the NSW Government's record $11.9 billion investment in health infrastructure through 2025–2026, which also includes the Adolescent and Young Adult Hospice in Manly and the $265 million Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital refurbishment.
