First look at new $700 million Rouse Hill Hospital in Western Sydney Local Health District

In a milestone moment, Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD) has released a first look at the $700 million Rouse Hill Hospital, the first major adult hospital built in Western Sydney in over 40 years.

The NSW Government is getting on with the job of delivering the 300 bed hospital set to deliver much-needed contemporary healthcare facilities for the growing North West community.

Thousands of families are moving into the North-West growth area, with the Blacktown Local Government Area (LGA) population expected to grow to almost 500,000 by 2041.

The new hospital will bring healthcare closer to communities around Rouse Hill, Tallawong, Schofields, The Ponds, North Kellyville, Riverstone and Marsden Park.

Rouse Hill Hospital is expected to include:   

  • an emergency and urgent care department
  • in-patient beds and a day surgery unit
  • short stay medical assessment services
  • pathology, pharmacy, and medical imaging services
  • outpatient and ambulatory care services including paediatrics, renal, maternity services and women’s health
  • a health hub for virtual care and hospital in the home services
  • prehabilitation, rehabilitation and lifestyle medicine. 

Artist’s impressions of the new Rouse Hill Hospital show wards with views to the mountains and a multi-storey car park, all in close proximity to public transport. 

The new hospital will be one of the first sites to adopt the NSW Labor Government’s full campus model which incorporates health worker accommodation and childcare services.

Planning and design is underway with community feedback being considered ahead of further consultation with health professionals and the community planned for this year.

Construction of the hospital will support an estimated 1200 direct jobs and thousands of indirect jobs throughout the life of the project.

The new Rouse Hill Hospital is part of the NSW Government’s $3 billion investment for new and upgraded hospitals and health services across greater western Sydney, one of the largest investments in the region’s health infrastructure in recent years.
