One of the state’s largest hospital projects will begin within weeks, with the main works contractor appointed for the $790 million Liverpool Health and Academic Precinct.

Health Minister Brad Hazzard announced the awarding of the principal contract to Lendlease, following a competitive tender process.

“The Liverpool Health and Academic Precinct will deliver a world-class medical, research and education hub in the rapidly growing south-western Sydney region,” Mr Hazzard said.

“The redevelopment will be a real boost for communities throughout the region, bringing greatly enhanced healthcare services closer to home.”

The redeveloped hospital will provide a total of 900 beds, an expanded emergency department, new maternity and paediatric inpatient beds and double the capacity within the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Another key feature will be a new, expanded Integrated Cancer Centre which will almost double the chemotherapy treatment spaces.

Member for Holsworthy Melanie Gibbons said the redevelopment would boost the local economy and meet the south-western Sydney’s community’s growing healthcare needs now and into the future.

“The start of major works at this new world-class precinct will support thousands of jobs during the construction phases and beyond, which will be greatly welcomed as we recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Ms Gibbons said.

Construction of a $50 million multi-storey car park for the Liverpool Hospital is already underway, with work being carried out by ADCO Constructions.

The precinct is part of the NSW Government’s record $10.8 billion investment in health infrastructure over four years to 2024-2025.

Over $5.5 billion in health capital works are underway in  Western and South Western Sydney including:
