Balmain Hospital Upgrade

Sydney Local Health District is upgrading Balmain Hospital.

The upgrades will improve the care provided to aged and rehabilitation patients at Balmain Hospital. The works will create 14 single rooms including six additional beds and a ceiling hoist for bariatric patients. The design will align with best practice for treating patients with dementia or delirium.

The works have been funded by the State Government and commenced in October 2016.

The General Practice Casualty will continue to operate as usual, treating minor illnesses and injuries from 8am to 10pm, seven days per week.

Construction update - August 2017

To date the following works have been completed on site:

  • All concrete slabs, columns and walls for the new structure have been completed.
  • Removal of internal brickwork on levels 4-5 has commenced with internal fit outs on these levels underway.
  • Clinical services on the North wing of levels 4-5 have been relocated to allow internal works to be undertaken.

Due to some unforeseen circumstances and weather delays the project is forecast to be completed by October/November 2017.
The progress of this project will be updated on this site.

Extended working hours

The construction company will need to complete some works outside of the normal hours until 17 August 2017. The extended hours will include Monday to Friday 5.30-11.30pm and Sunday 8am-4pm and will be in addition to the normal Monday to Saturday 7.30am-5.30pm.
The only works to be done in the extended hours will be quiet trades, for example flooring and painting. No deliveries or truck movements will occur after hours and works will not be conducted every night in this period.
