The $550 million Stage 1 expansion and upgrade of Nepean Hospital and community-based services will help to future-proof health services in the area and improve access to high-quality health care for thousands of people.

As part of Stage 1, a new hospital tower will be built to house an expanded emergency department, more than 200 overnight beds, at least 12 new operating theatres, 18 birthing suites, a new neonatal intensive care unit and a rooftop helipad.

The project team is currently working closely with various stakeholders including consumers and health staff to determine the best layout of each new unit within the tower. This stage of the project is called schematic design.

The schematic design phase is scheduled to be complete in the first half of 2018 and will be followed by the detailed design process which determines the furnishings and fittings within each public and clinical space.
