Still time for you to have say on new hospital plans

WITH planning underway for the new $1.3 billion Bankstown Hospital on Chapel Road at Bankstown, anyone who lives or works in the area has been invited to share their thoughts.

Many have already shared their views at community information sessions at Bankstown Central last week, but there is still time to have a say online.
Stay MP for East Hills, Kylie Wilkinson, said community feedback was very important and would “help ensure that the hospital delivers what our community needs”.
The new hospital, which is expected to include Emergency services, Intensive care, Surgery and interventional procedures, Women’s and Children’s Health, Aged health, Mental health and Ambulatory care services, will be integrated with the existing Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital site, which will remain as a health facility, to deliver contemporary healthcare and a better healthcare experience across a broad range of community and hospital-based services.
Minister for Health, Ryan Park, said the “new hospital will transform healthcare for the Bankstown and surrounding communities” and was the first major investment in the Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital since the hospitals merged in 1997.
