The NSW Government is building a new hospital at Frenchs Forest with an estimated completion date of 2018.
Northern Beaches Hospital is being built on a 6.5 hectare site at Frenchs Forest, bound by Frenchs Forest Road West, Warringah Road, Wakehurst Parkway and The Forest High School. This is known as the Northern Beaches Hospital project.
Council is preparing the Northern Beaches Hospital Precinct Structure Plan. The purpose of the Plan is to look at the wider land use implications of the proposed new hospital. It will involve a detailed analysis of opportunities and constraints, to properly plan for future development around the new hospital.
Council has engaged consultants to undertake this important planning task. It's hoped the first draft will be avilable for public comment in early 2016.
Northern Beaches Hospital
Northern Beaches Hospital is the first major investment in public health infrastructure on the northern beaches for decades, and a long-held ambition for the local community.
A new hospital for the northern beaches community will provide more health services and complex care at contemporary standards, with modern infrastructure that supports innovation, research, teaching and clinical changes well into the future.
When the doors open in 2018, the new facility will deliver level 5 hospital services to the local community; with 488 beds, a large emergency department, theatres and a GP clinic on site.
For the first time, the northern beaches community won’t have to travel outside the area to receive complex healthcare treatments.
