NSW Health is calling for feedback on Sydney’s Royal Prince Alfred (RPA) Hospital redevelopment which aims at a handling significant increases in demand for health services.

Inviting the feedback survey, NSW Health said the redevelopment would see RPA’s biggest transformation in its 140-year history.

“The redevelopment will deliver an enhanced and expanded Emergency Department and Intensive Care Unit, as well as world-class medical imaging suites, operating theatres and maternity, birthing and neonatal areas and additional adult and paediatric inpatient beds,” NSW Health said.

“The consultation builds upon the extensive engagement already undertaken with staff, clinicians and consumers to understand service and department needs to ensure the hospital is purpose-built to meet the growing healthcare needs of patients, staff and the broader community.”

It said community feedback would assist with the detailed planning and design process.

Minister for Health, Brad Hazzard said RPA was known for its leading role in providing the most complex and specialised state-wide clinical services.

“The new hospital aims to meet the area’s growing needs for health services into the future,” Mr Hazzard said.

“This $750 million transformation of RPA will provide even more world-class health services and incredible new opportunities for teaching and innovation,” he said.
