Register for Greenwich Hospital Community Information Sessions on Design Plans

    In November 2020, the Independent Planning Commission approved plans for a $141.5 million redevelopment of Greenwich Hospital.  Background information on the IPC decision here.

    The Concept State Significant Design proposal for Greenwich Hospital covers the demolition of all buildings other than Pallister House, and the construction of an integrated hospital and residential care building serviced seniors living accommodation, respite facility and basement car parking.

    Care services that will be provided at the new Greenwich Health Campus include palliative care, mental health, rehabilitation (including hydrotherapy), serviced seniors living, aged care, General Practitioners, outpatient clinics, research and 24/7 on-site care.

    Detailed Design Plans

    HammondCare has now developed detailed design plans.

    HammondCare General Manager of Health and Palliative Care Andrew Montague said the detailed proposal respects the site’s significant heritage while bringing the campus into the 21st century with state-of-the-art healthcare provision.

    “HammondCare is pleased to be bringing the detailed plans back to the community to demonstrate how it is consistent with the Concept approval and to share how we plan to transform the Greenwich Hospital from a dated, 1960’s facility into an integrated, contemporary healthcare campus.”

    “HammondCare recognises the importance of this project to the local community – we are committed to working closely with local residents as the project develops and to ensure the new health care facilities meet community needs, both now and into the future.”

    How Do I See the Detailed Designs?

    HammondCare is holding online community sessions on the detailed design for the Greenwich Hospital site.  After the sessions, they expect to lodge a Detailed State Significant Design Application by mid-2022.

    The online information sessions will be held on March 28 and 31, 2022.

    When Will the Redevelopment Be Completed?

    HammondCare on their websites states:

    “The realisation of HammondCare’s vision for Greenwich Hospital will take many years to complete. HammondCare recognises the significant interest in our plans and we are committed to working with the community to develop contemporary services that meet future needs.

    Depending on approvals, HammondCare expects construction to begin in 2023. The hospital will continue to operate during construction.”
