fly-through animation and latest designs released 

A New fly-through animation and latest designs for the Ryde Hospital Redevelopment have been unveiled, showcasing a major expansion and upgrade of services to meet the health needs of communities in the Ryde region. 

The NSW Government has allocated $479 million for the Ryde Hospital Redevelopment, which once complete will deliver a new and expanded emergency department and intensive care unit, new theatres, new purpose-built ambulatory care centre, new paediatric short stay unit and expanded medical imaging. 

The latest designs follow a significant amount of engagement with the local community, clinicians and key healthcare stakeholders as well as feedback from staff and consumers.  

Central to the design is connections with existing onsite heritage buildings such as Denistone House and The Stables, and the Blue Gum High Forest, as well as green spaces to create a welcoming environment for patients, staff and visitors. 

The Ryde Hospital Redevelopment will include:  

  • a new and expanded emergency department  

  • a new and expanded medical imaging department  

  • a new and expanded intensive care unit  

  • new operating theatres  

  • more adult overnight inpatient beds  

  • a new purpose-built ambulatory care centre  

  • a new paediatric short stay unit  

  • improved landscaping, urban spaces and car parking  

In response to feedback from the local community and key agencies, changes have been made to the carpark plans to include a new multi-storey car park off Denistone Road and ground-level parking off Ryedale Road. The updated plans are expected to be placed on public exhibition in the coming weeks.  

HPAC has been appointed the early works contractor for the redevelopment and work is set to commence next month. Main works construction is expected to begin in late 2023. 

The early works will include internal refurbishment to prepare for the first phase of the redevelopment, demolition of three buildings at the rear of the site, partial demolition of ground level carparking and general site preparation earthworks. 

A final State Significant Development Application (SSDA) will be submitted in mid-2023, seeking approval for the final design and main construction works for the redevelopment.
