Multiplex appointed to new Maitland Hospital
Premier global construction company Multiplex has been appointed by Health Infrastructure to deliver the new $470 million Maitland Hospital in the Lower Hunter Valley region of New South Wales.
Located on a greenfield site in Metford, the New Maitland Hospital will boast state-of-the-art facilities for local residents and the region.
It will provide a range of adult and paediatric services including emergency, paediatric, maternity, chemotherapy and state-of-the art operating suites.
Multiplex Regional Managing Director David Ghannoum said this would be the sixth hospital Multiplex has delivered for the NSW Government in recent years.
“We are thrilled to extend our relationship with Health Infrastructure as delivery partner for the New Maitland Hospital,” he said.
“This is a fantastic piece of infrastructure for the Hunter region and we are looking forward to playing an active role in the community, both in the delivery of the Hospital and beyond.
Multiplex will commence main works in early 2019, with the hospital expected to open in 2022.
Multiplex has developed a strong reputation for construction in the health sector with recent projects in NSW including the $900 million Westmead Redevelopment, the St George Hospital Redevelopment in Kogarah, the South East Regional Hospital in Bega and the Byron Central Hospital.
