​Ryde and surrounding communities are a step closer to accessing an enhanced range of health services with the building contractor for the $479 million Ryde Hospital Redevelopment appointed.

The NSW Government investment will deliver a world-class health facility to meet the future health needs of the growing community.

AW Edwards has been appointed the building contractor for the project. Construction is expected to start in mid-2024 and will include the demolition of old buildings, construction of new hospital buildings and refurbishment of existing hospital spaces.

The NSW Government will work closely with the contractor to minimise construction impacts and ensure the hospital remains open throughout the redevelopment.

NSW Health will ensure staff, patients and the community continue to be informed as works progress.
