The Minister for Health, the Hon Brad Hazzard, was joined by the Premier, The Hon Gladys Berejiklian to officially open the Acute Services Building on Monday 30 November.
There will be restricted access to the Acute Services Building (ASB) until 23 October. Only authorised people will be able to access the new building. Security will be patrolling and CCTV cameras will be operational.
The scaffolding has come off, the finishing touches are being applied and we are now heading towards building handover and commissioning – preparing the facility and staff for occupation.
Over 600 staff participated in Get Ready to Go Live Staff Activation Day on 22 August. All 530 sausages were cooked and eaten, with no food left at the end of the event.
The Acute Services Building is set to be completed and handed over to the Hospital in October, with our first departments set to Go Live at the end of October. The latest aerial photos show how far the construction has progressed since January 2016. This photo shows the crane, ‘Captain Hook’, still in place.
Thank you for your patience during the Main Entry upgrades. Works are still in progress, but now once you are inside, fresh white paint, new floor coverings and new wooden handrails have replaced the previous interiors of olive green and pink.
