Lendlease is soon to break ground on one of the New South Wales’ largest healthcare projects, a $800-million hospital project in western Sydney. The Liverpool Health and Academic Precinct will provide a total of 900 beds, an expanded emergency department, new maternity and paediatric inpatient beds and double the capacity within the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
Plans were initially drawn up in order to integrate a new innovation precinct with the University of Wollongong, Western Sydney University, the University of NSW and TAFE NSW, along with the Sydney Southwest Private Hospital and the Ingham Institute of Applied Medical Research.
Plans were approved by the NSW Planning Department in November 2020.
Stage one main works includes redeveloping the main entrance of the hospital, maternity services, outpatient and support services, including a new pathology department and an expansion of the emergency department. The project’s second stage will include the construction of the new integrated services building, which includes outpatient clinics, inpatient units, a new wellness centre and loading dock.
