Solid start to construction 

First slab pour for Campbelltown Hospital Redevelopment
The Macarthur community is a step closer to having their new clinical services building delivered as part of Campbelltown Hospital’s stage 2 redevelopment, with the first concrete pour marking a significant project milestone.

Commencement of the ground floor slab for the new 12-storey clinical services building has been welcomed by the project team and hospital staff, with the concrete pour for the ground floor of the new building being a key stage in the delivery of the project.

This ground floor will eventually house the hospital's new emergency department, which will include increased treatment spaces and additional emergency short stay unit beds, helping the hospital respond to the increasing demand for emergency care.

An initial pour of 120 cubic metres of concrete, enough to fill 14 Olympic-sized swimming pools and creating a 700 square metre section of slab, marked the first stage of what will be a total ground floor slab of 6335 square metres.

The redevelopment will provide a welcome boost to services, with an expanded emergency department, state-of-the-art operating theatres and intensive care unit to care for some of our community’s most vulnerable.

The new clinical services building will also support expanded and centrally located mental health units, upgraded maternity and paediatric services and enhanced diagnostic services, including more medical imaging equipment.
Other works will include a new hospital entry, improved pedestrian links to existing hospital buildings, new internal link roads and landscaping.

New images showcasing what the redevelopment might look like on completion in late 2023 have also been released.
