Transforming public healthcare in northern Sydney.
Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital is a highly regarded major metropolitan and teaching hospital providing integral health services to the northern regions of Sydney. To meet the future health needs of the community, the NSW Government invested $265 million to redevelop Hornsby Ku-ring gai Hospital, improving access to quality healthcare closer to home.
Completed in 2022, Stage 2 of the redevelopment includes a new multi-story clinical service building, an expanded Emergency Department and enhancements to a range of health services including medical imaging, paediatrics, respiratory and cardiac care.
Stage 2A includes:
- Fit-out of two rehabilitation inpatient units
- Refurbishment and expansion of the psychiatric emergency care centre
- Outpatient ambulatory care services, including the provision of a day chemotherapy unit and a renal dialysis unit for the first time
- Expansion of oral health services
- Integration of community health services
- A helipad
The APP Group was appointed to provide Project Management and Principal Representative services for Stage 2 and Stage 2A of the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital redevelopment project. The role covers oversight of the early planning phase, and design, procurement and construction phases.
The project team developed strategies to enable the full spectrum of stakeholders at various stages of the project. We engaged with clinical practitioners and managers during the design input and sign-off process through a series of multifaceted and multimodal forums that enabled us to communicate openly, understand their perspectives, and speak their language.
Working together with the hospital team, The APP Group’s project team effectively managed disruptions through a collaborative approach to issuing Disruption Work Notices. As a result, critical hospital services could remain in operation while the construction was taking place.
Working with The APP Group on Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital Stage 2A has been a pleasure. The team has collaborated closely with us to develop constructive solutions to facilitate project delivery and ensure minimal disruption to hospital services. The team has proven their ability to adapt, ensuing we deliver on time with minimal impact to our patients and staff.
