Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Health Minister Brad Hazzard have officially opened an expansion of Sutherland Hospital as part of a $62.9 million redevelopment.
The Premier and Mr Hazzard were joined by Member for Cronulla Mark Speakman, Member for Miranda Eleni Petinos, Member for Heathcote Lee Evans and Member for Holsworthy Melanie Gibbons.
“Today’s opening reaffirms the NSW Government’s commitment to delivering better health services for the people of southern Sydney,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“This is an outstanding building, which will benefit patients and staff alike.”
Mr Hazzard said the new building boasts the latest medical technologies and will ensure frontline health care will be delivered in state-of-the-art facilities.
“The $62.9 million redevelopment is in addition to the $9.1 million multi-deck car park, completed in late 2014, which provided an extra 300 car spaces.”
“It is wonderful to see the dedicated staff at Sutherland Hospital now have a world-class facility, equipment and services to improve on the exceptional care they already provide,” Mr Hazzard said.
The redevelopment includes:
Works are now underway on the redevelopment of Edwardstown Oval in Marion, after the project received $4 million in funding from the Australian Government.
The Public Transport Projects Alliance (PTP Alliance) consisting of McConnell Dowell, Mott MacDonald and Arup have been awarded the contract that will see the Oaklands Park level crossing removed.
Works are progressing well on the Northlink WA project’s southern section, with traffic now diverted from Tonkin Highway to Collier Road.
Stage 2 of the Exmouth Boat Harbour upgrade has now been completed, paving the way for job opportunities and economic growth for the area.
Several notorious blackspots are set to receive upgrades thanks to $22 million worth of funding from the South Australian State Government to improve safety across Adelaide’s roads.
