A redevelopment of Gosford Private Hospital to the tune of $32M is underway with a sod turning ceremony on September 20 kick-starting the project.
The major revamp will deliver 12 theatres, additional beds, an expanded day surgery unit/recovery chairs, a new maternity ward and more to meet the growing demands of the Central Coast community.
“The redevelopment of Gosford Private is an exciting opportunity for our staff, doctors and the community,” Hospital CEO, Matt Kelly, said.
“Having additional theatres, beds, a new purpose-built maternity ward and additional car parking allows us to continue to service our local community with world-class facilities and a patient experience to match.”
The upgrade is being funded as part of Barwon Investment Partners’ recent acquisition of the hospital.
Building works will be undertaken by Red Eye Construction, and are expected to take approximately 18 months to complete.
The sod-turning ceremony was attended by Member for Gosford, Liesl Tesch, Member for Wyong, David Harris, former Central Coast Council Deputy Mayor, Chris Holstein, Tom Patrick of Barwon Investment Properties, Jason Rose of Red Eye Constructions, Brisbane Waters Private Hospital CEO, Kathy Beverley, and Tuggerah Lakes Private Hospital CEO, Glen Auld.
The Ceremony included a Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony by Kevin Duncan from Darkinjung Local Aboriginal Land Council to bless the land and prepare the site for the new construction.
