The NSW Government is investing $100 million in the HealthOne Program which includes 20 HealthOne projects across NSW being delivered by Local Health Districts in partnership with Health Infrastructure.
These integrated health facilities will improve patient access to health services and improve health outcomes for the community by providing health services closer to home, and through the development of close collaboration and networks with other services.

RPA HealthOne will provide comprehensive health services, backed by education and research, to support the health and wellbeing of the local community.
RPA HealthOne will partner with community, primary care, and education and training institutes to support the medical and health neighbourhood to improve patient care outside of the hospital system.
The linkage of RPA HealthOne to the specialist clinical services at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital will significantly enhance access to services for the community.
Sydney Local Health District will continue to consult with the community about the healthcare services they would like to access at RPA HealthOne Green Square.
RPA HealthOne will deliver a range of healthcare services focused on population health, early intervention, health promotion and prevention, including services that would traditionally be provided in a hospital setting at RPA. These may include diabetes, cardiology and gastro and liver clinics as well as community health services such as child and family health and mental health.
In addition, a major focus of RPA HealthOne is the formation of an Academic Primary Care Unit which will partner with primary practitioners in the area, such as GPs, nurse practitioners, pharmacists and allied health professionals.
Working with university partners and the Central and Eastern Sydney Primary Health Network, RPA HealthOne will play a unique role in supporting primary health practitioners in the local area to translate and adopt the latest clinical research findings to support the best outcomes for patients.
Further information about the services at RPA HealthOne will be available as the project progresses.
RPA HealthOne will be located at 944 Bourke Street, Zetland, close to the Green Square train station.
Green Square, located just outside Sydney’s CBD and airport, is the largest urban renewal site in Australia and is growing rapidly.
It’s projected to be home to more than 61,000 people by 2031, and with many thousands of people also working in the area daily, it will become one of the most densely populated areas in Australia.
Early works for the RPA HealthOne project began on the site in December 2020. The early works involve demolition and removal of previous structures to prepare the site for construction.
Main works will start following Development Application (DA) approval by City of Sydney. The project is expected to be completed in late 2022. Project updates will be available at this site.
