Enabling Works

A growing and ageing population in the St George and surrounding areas is a major driver for the projected strong demand for health services at St George Hospital. 

To maintain hospital services as normal throughout the redevelopment, construction works are being delivered in a staged approach to make sure there is minimal disruption to patients, visitors and staff.

The redevelopment will improve the ability to manage surges in demand at one of the state’s busiest trauma centres.

Enabling works were undertaken in three locations:  

Kensington Street

  • Enabling works commenced in November 2014 to demolish the old Emergency Department to make way for a new car park and entrance to the hospital.
  • Completed in July 2015, the new street level car park provides 55 spaces, drop-off zone and new pedestrian access to and from the Kogarah town centre. The new pedestrian entrance provides better access for patients and visitors to day surgery, ambulatory and imaging services. 

Gray Street main entrance

  • Construction work commenced in March 2015 at the Gray Street main entrance to improve traffic flow and increase the number of street level parking spaces. Construction work was completed in August 2015. 

Internal hospital works

  • In-ground services work was completed in preparation for the new Acute Services Building, including an upgrade of fire services.
