Expanded Emergency opens at Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital

The south-western Sydney community will access world-class healthcare in the $25 million redeveloped Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital Emergency Department, now open to patients.

Minister for Health Brad Hazzard and Member for East Hills Wendy Lindsay today visited the Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital to see first-hand the expanded emergency department, which will deliver enhanced medical care to residents of south-western Sydney, one of the fastest growing populations in the state.

“This multi-million dollar upgrade is a fantastic boost for south-western Sydney, ensuring world-class healthcare at the community’s doorstep, and allowing more patients to be treated more quickly for better health outcomes,” Hazzard said.

“Patients will have a better experience thanks to additional treatment spaces, a faster journey through the emergency department, and potentially a shorter stay in hospital.”

The emergency department redevelopment includes additional adult and paediatric treatment spaces, a dedicated waiting area, enhanced mental health care, additional resuscitation beds, increased capacity in the short-stay unit and a layout designed to better streamline the flow of patients.

Lindsay said the project is evidence of the NSW Government’s commitment to enhancing healthcare services for the people of south-western Sydney.

“As our south-western Sydney population continues to boom, so do the health needs of our diverse community. This safe, modern health facility will provide enhanced emergency care to improve our community’s health outcomes,” Lindsay said.

The NSW Government has announced $1.3 billion to build a new Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital on a new greenfield site, with planning and site investigations underway. Also underway in south-western Sydney is the $632 million stage two redevelopment of Campbelltown Hospital and $740 million redevelopment of Liverpool Hospital.
