Christmas has certainly arrived at Blacktown Hospital with the installation of a 12-foot Christmas tree at the hospital’s main entrance.
The tree, which is sitting beautifully in the centre of the hospital atrium, was donated by Jacobs Architects.
Jacobs Architects was the company behind the design of the new Blacktown Hospital as part of the $700 million Blacktown and Mount Druitt hospitals’ expansion project.
Architect Chin Young said the company was very happy to have donated the tree.
“We have been so emotionally attached to the redevelopment and people at the hospital since the inception of the project back in 2011,” Chin said.
“The project and journey Jacobs have taken with the whole team has been so rewarding. We are proud to see the project’s positive influence in the community.
“The donation is a small gesture and one that we are humbled to be able to contribute back.”
Blacktown & Mount Druitt hospitals’ general manager Ned Katrib thanked Jacobs Architects for their generous donation.
“The tree looks fantastic in the atrium with our stunning new building as the backdrop,” Ned said.
“This gesture means a lot to all of the patients and staff who walk into a hospital at this time of year.”
