$780 Million Investment at John Hunter Hospital

The concept design for the new, seven-storey acute services building for john hunter and John Hunter’s Children’s Hospitals has been unveiled, marking a milestone for the nsw government’s $780 million health precinct.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the John Hunter Health and Innovation Precinct would drive significant economic growth in the Greater Newcastle region, generating jobs in construction and health.

“John Hunter hospital is one of the busiest hospitals in NSW, and this investment will provide enhanced health facilities ensuring the region has a world-class hospital to cater to its growing population,” Ms Berejiklian said.

“Construction of the precinct will support more than 3,000 jobs over the life of the project, helping stimulate the economy, a key component of the NSW Government’s COVID-19 recovery plan.”

Health Minister Brad Hazzard said the redevelopment would significantly increase critical care capacity, with a 60 per cent increase in the Intensive Care Unit capacity and almost 50 per cent more theatres, interventional suites and procedural spaces.
