Australia’s New South Wales (NSW) Government has earmarked A$3bn ($1.93bn) in the budget for hospital upgrades and construction in Greater Western Sydney.

This investment is said to be one of the largest healthcare infrastructure investments in the region’s recent history.

The budget includes A$400m ($257.65m) for the construction of the A$700m ($450.88m) Rouse Hill Hospital, the first new adult public hospital in Western Sydney in over 40 years.

It will be equipped with emergency, maternity, ambulatory, outpatient care, and medical imaging services.

Other investments include A$550m ($354.27m) for Fairfield Hospital, A$350m ($225.44m) for Canterbury Hospital, A$1.3bn ($837.36m) to build the Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital, and A$120m ($77.29m) for additional beds at Blacktown and Mt Druitt Hospitals.

These investments aim to add 600 new hospital beds in Greater Western Sydney, addressing healthcare challenges caused by years of neglect.
