The NSW Government has announced the site for the $300 million Rouse Hill Hospital, to be built on the north-eastern side of Windsor Road.
Health Minister Brad Hazzard said the new site, located near Commercial Road, ensures ideal transport and road links for Western Sydney’s growing population.
“I want to thank the local community for their patience as the experts have worked through a number of challenging obstacles to select a site which will offer the best outcome for the people of Rouse Hill and Western Sydney,” Mr Hazzard said.
“I am thrilled to see us move to the next stage in delivering this vital health infrastructure project. The final site has better access and allows for more land use opportunities compared with the previously announced site, and allows us to better meet the future health needs of Western Sydney.”
Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly said the new hospital will be a tremendous asset for generations.
“I am excited that we are still on track to get construction underway before the next election. To have a new hospital built in the right location is what our communities deserve,” Mr Conolly said.
Member for Castle Hill Ray Williams said it would be a huge advantage for our patients, staff and carers to have good connectivity to the Rouse Hill Town Centre and a Sydney Metro station so close.
“Good public transport and road access is essential. Not just for patients and their families but also for the thousands of staff who will get jobs at this new hospital,” Mr Williams said.
The site acquisition process is underway and construction will start in this term of Government, prior to March 2023. The NSW Government has committed $10.7 billion in health infrastructure investment over four years. Since 2011, the NSW Government has completed more than 150 health capital projects across the state.
