Multiplex To Deliver $277 Million St George Hospital Redevelopment
Multiplex, a leading global contractor, has been appointed to construct the $277 million St George Hospital redevelopment at Gray Street, Kogarah.
Health Infrastructure announced Multiplex won the competitive tender to build the hospital, having completed an Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) contract to carry out design documentation and prepare the site for main works construction.
Mr David Ghannoum, Regional Managing Director NSW at Multiplex, said the St. George Hospital project was a welcome addition to its extensive experience in hospital construction.
“We are delighted to be delivering another project for NSW Health Infrastructure. We completed the Royal North Shore Hospital’s Clinical Services Building last year as well as the South East Regional Hospital in Bega just recently, and are working towards completion of the Byron Central Hospital next year,” said Mr Ghannoum.
Oatley MP Mark Coure said, “Patients and staff love the $41 million emergency department, which opened last year, and have been looking forward to seeing this new building rise above it. This appointment takes the community’s dream a step closer to reality.”
The centrepiece of the $307 million redevelopment is a seven-level Acute Services Building, which will be built above the new emergency department. It will feature an intensive care unit, high dependency unit, cardiac intensive care unit, extra operating theatres, extra acute inpatient beds and a sterilising services department.
Construction of the Acute Services Building is scheduled for completion by the end of 2017, with patients to move in 2018.
