Preparations for the new building began in January 2022, with priority and infrastructure works being carried out by ADCO Construction. Work is also underway to deliver a refurbished Clinical Skills Centre, a new Acute Care Imaging Unit and capability to accommodate two MRI machines.

Health Minister Brad Hazzard said the NSW Government is investing in a major redevelopment at St George Hospital to provide more advanced health services and facilities closer to home for Sydney’s southern communities.

“The new Ambulatory Care Building brings essential health services including physical rehabilitation, medical imaging tests, blood transfusions and biopsies under the one roof, making it easier for outpatients to access the healthcare they need,” Hazzard said.

“The designs unveiled today are the result of extensive planning undertaken with staff and local communities to ensure the new precinct meets the healthcare needs of this dynamic and rapidly growing region both now and in the years to come.”

Member for Oatley Mark Coure welcomed the opportunity for the St George community to see the future of their local hospital and the world-class facilities the NSW Government is delivering for staff and patients.

“Unveiling these images for the first time today, we can see just how the new building will integrate into the existing hospital campus as well as the vision for the public forecourt area which will become the new main entrance for the hospital,” Coure said.
