About our redevelopment

The Nepean Redevelopment will deliver contemporary and expanded hospital services, and integrated community health facilities for the Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District. The redevelopment of the Nepean Hospital is being carried out in stages. The NSW Government has committed $550 million to deliver Stage 1 and $450 million to deliver Stage 2. This will also include the construction of a $26 million multi-storey car park on Barber Avenue to support the expanded services on campus. An expansion and upgrade of services is also being carried out on the Nepean Cancer Care Centre, Blue Mountains Satellite Renal Dialysis Centre and Somerset Cottage.
