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 - November 2017

To date the following works have been completed on site:

  • All concrete slabs, columns and walls for the new structure
  • Removal of internal brickwork and internal fitout on levels 3, 2 and 1 underway
  • Clinical services have returned to the north wing of level 5 - Lever Ward occupying the new area
  • Clinical services have returned to the north wing of level 4

Due to some unforeseen circumstances and weather delays the project is forecast to be completed in early January 2018.
The progress of this project will be updated on this site.

Balmain Hospital continues to communicate with local residents regarding their concerns about the project. The hospital will hold its next information night with local residents on Thursday 14 December 2017 at 6pm in the Hospital's Boardroom.
