Concept design

Concept designs were unveiled by NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Health Minister Brad Hazzard in October 2020.   

These revealed more detail about the $835 million 
expansion of the  John Hunter and  John Hunter Children’s Hospitals that will greatly  increase capacity for critical care and see  some existing  services refurbished. 

The artist’s impression below shows in greater detail the connection of the existing hospital and the new Acute Services Building.   

This important connection will be nurtured through connective link bridges, garden and landscaping, to create an expanded and enhanced facility which is key to the overall John Hunter Health and Innovation Precinct.  

Significant works at the reimagined main entry to the hospital include an entry canopy to clearly identify the main entry and start of the journey for patients, carers, visitors and the broader community. It will also provide protection from the natural elements such as sun,rain and wind.   With the construction of the new road network greatly reducing traffic, the main entry space will provide a more welcoming and relaxed space for all visitors.
