Happy 1st Birthday to our Clinical Services Building

Happy-Birthday.pngCampbelltown Hospital’s world-class Clinical Services Building is celebrating its first birthday after an incredible 12 months of progress and achievement.

Since the commissioning of the 12-storey hospital tower in June last year, staff have performed more than 13,290 surgical procedures and delivered 3408 babies. There were 84,850 Emergency Department presentations.

Camden and Campbelltown Hospitals General Manager Grant Isedale congratulated all staff on the historical milestone. “What a wonderful achievement for everyone - our state-of-the-art new hospital has turned one,’’ Mr Isedale said.

“I am so proud of our staff for their outstanding work over the past year, both during the commissioning and settling into our new building. I thank everyone for their excellent work and dedication and I look forward to our contemporary new facilities serving our community for many years to come.’’

The building houses an expanded Emergency Department and a range of key services, including state-of-the-art operating theatres, enhanced Intensive Care Unit, expanded women’s and children’s services and centrally located mental health services. Dedicated mental health units are providing short stay, acute and intensive care for adolescents to older adults.

Mr Isedale thanked and congratulated the project team leading the redevelopment. “It has been wonderful to see this amazing project take shape into a stunning modern facility, providing
high-quality care to the people of Macarthur close to home,” he said.

Set for completion by late 2023, the $632 million Stage 2 redevelopment is now in the process of removing old building C in preparation for the construction of  a second, northern entrance for Campbelltown Hospital.
