Bankstown CBD announced as location for new hospital

The New Bankstown Hospital will be located at the TAFE campus in Bankstown’s CBD, delivering a brand new hospital to Western Sydney residents.

The location provides convenient access to public transport links for patients, staff and visitors, including bus, rail and the future Metro.
It also provides opportunities for future expansion for research and education to create a new ‘health neighbourhood’ for integrated health care.
The Canterbury Bankstown local government area is expected to grow by about 20 per cent to nearly half-a-million people by 2036.
To meet the health needs of the rapidly-growing community, the NSW Government has committed $1.3 billion for the planned hospital.
The scope for the hospital will be determined through the planning process which will take place in 2024 in consultation with staff, clinicians and patients.
The scope for the new Bankstown Hospital will be determined through the planning process, and is expected to include: 
  • Expanded emergency services
  • Intensive care
  • Surgery and interventional procedures
  • Women’s and Children’s Health
  • Aged health
  • Mental health
  • Cancer services
  • Ambulatory care services. 
The new hospital will integrate with the existing hospital site to allow contemporary models of care and deliver an improved healthcare experience.
The project is part of a statewide infrastructure program to help deliver essential healthcare services for families, reduce waiting times and improving access to timely, high-quality healthcare.
TAFE NSW will maintain a strong presence in Bankstown, and TAFE NSW will consult with employees and students about temporarily relocating TAFE NSW facilities during construction of the new hospital.
Consulting with employees and students about temporary relocation options will ensure the development of the new hospital causes as little disruption as possible to learners.
This will ensure TAFE NSW is well positioned to meet the learning needs of the local community, improve educational outcomes, and support the state’s priority skills needs.
