John Hunter Health and Innovation Precinct
The NSW Government’s $780 million John Hunter Health and Innovation Precinct project will transform healthcare services for Newcastle, the greater Hunter region and northern NSW communities. Infrastructure will be delivered to support the expansion of clinical and non-clinical services and will increase the capacity at the John Hunter and John Hunter Children’s Hospitals.
The John Hunter Health and Innovation Precinct project will deliver an innovative and integrated precinct with industry-leading facilities. The project will work in collaboration with health, education and research partners to meet the current and future needs of the Greater Newcastle, Hunter New England and Northern NSW regions.
The existing John Hunter and John Hunter Children’s Hospitals will be redeveloped and expanded to deliver a new seven-storey Acute Services Building. This infrastructure will provide additional inpatient capacity to the John Hunter and John Hunter Children’s Hospitals and create further opportunities for partnerships with industry and higher education providers.
An interim expansion of the existing Emergency Department is underway in advance of the new Emergency Department in the new Acute Services Building. Other interim works will help alleviate traffic congestion onsite and support further planning for the precinct.
The John Hunter Health and Innovation Precinct project is being delivered in partnership with Health Infrastructure and Hunter New England Local Health District.
