Palliative Care Unit

About this project

The NSW Government has allocated $93 million to redevelop and refurbish palliative care units across the state as part of the World Class End of Life Care commitment, including a new palliative care unit at Nepean Hospital.

The new Palliative Care Unit at Nepean Hospital will provide specialised care and support to people with life-limiting illnesses in the Penrith and Blue Mountains regions.

The Unit will be located on Level 7 of the Stage 2 Tower of the current Nepean Hospital Redevelopment, which was selected following extensive consultation with staff and community members.

The planning and design of the Unit has involved extensive consultation with palliative care health professionals, carers and community members, to ensure the best outcome for the Nepean Blue Mountains community. 

Feedback from the community has also influenced the design for the new Unit, including the creation of home-like spaces, and large private rooms that can be personalised. 

Construction of the new Palliative Care unit at Nepean Hospital is scheduled to start following the completion of Planning and Design.
