OUR Tower cranes have names!

Name the Cranes winners
Siblings from Mount Annan, Jasmine (9) and Lachlan (8) have taken out first place in the Campbelltown Hospital Redevelopment Name the Cranes colouring competition, boasting crane naming rights.
The twin tower cranes supporting delivery of the $632 million Campbelltown Hospital redevelopment project are now fondly known as ‘Mac’ and ‘Arthur’ – cleverly named in recognition of the growing Macarthur region that our new hospital will support.
Hosted by the South West Sydney Local Health District earlier this year, the competition called on local school-aged children to play an active role in the project by suggesting potential names for the cranes that tower over the redevelopment construction site.
Dozens of entries were received, with submissions assessed by a judging panel consisting of staff and community members. The six prize winners were determined based on colouring skill and artistic flair, as well as the originality and symbolism of the suggested name.
Camden and Campbelltown Hospitals General Manager Alison Derrett said the naming of the cranes was a fun way to engage younger members of the community and help spread the word about the exciting project.
“Congratulations to our winners and a big thank you to everyone who participated. We had some great name suggestions and colouring skills displayed and it was encouraging to see so much interest in the Campbelltown Hospital redevelopment project,” Ms Derrett said.
“Striking blue banners donning the winning names are now proudly displayed on the cranes, which will be a feature of the Campbelltown skyline for the next 12 months as the new Clinical Services Building takes shape.”
“On completion of the redevelopment, our hospital will boast more clinical services and medical specialities, providing the local community with access to a broad range of healthcare close to home and improving our ability to manage more patients as the Macarthur community continues to grow,” Ms Derrett said.
The cranes, which soar a splendid 76 and 60 metres high and can each lift up to 24 tonnes up close, will remain on site until mid-2021.
