NSLHD Year in Review 2020

The second stage of the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital’s $265 million redevelopment is taking shape with new departments opening throughout the year. Hornsby’s Stage 2 Hospital Redevelopment takes shape

The first department to open was medical imaging, boasting the latest scanning and imaging technology – including an MRI for the first time in the hospital’s history. Hornsby MP, Matt Kean, and Ku-ring-gai MP, Alister Henskens, officially opened the department which is now double the size of the former unit. Staff are excited to care for patients in the new department which also has a SPEC-CT scanner, new CTs, ultrasounds and x-rays.

The local community will also benefit from a new orthopantogram (OPG) which allows for dental xrays and a fluoroscopy unit which is used widely for stroke patients to review speech and swallowing. Paediatrics was the second ward to open with families and staff delighted with the larger clinical spaces and dedicated parents’ lounge room and children’s play area. The outpatients department is now open and pharmacy and intensive care unit are due to open later this year.
