New private hospital on NSW Central Coast

SJB and Health Projects International have unveiled designs for a new hospital precinct on the New South Wales Central Coast.

The 238-bed Northside Private Hospital in Gosford will deliver public and private health care with integrated operating theatres, intensive care unit, mental health ward, outdoor care spaces and ground floor retail services.

SJB director Adam Haddow said the project was the firm’s first health care precinct. “We are passionate about bringing thoughtful architecture to regional Australia, and we are committed to delivering a sympathetic design outcome that enhances the local area and delivers care and amenity to the local community,”“ he said.

The design prioritizes an active and permeable ground plane, with a triple-height main entrance providing an abundance of natural light and ventilation, improving wayfinding and mitigating the stress of hospital waiting rooms. Green rooftop gardens will also offer outdoor experiences for patients and staff.

The 10-storey building is designed to integrate into the surrounding context, with the use of sandstone and terracotta referencing Gosford’s historic quarries and a generous colonnade wrapping the public domain retail spaces, creating a welcoming edge to the hosptial.

“Our experience in residential, commercial and hotel sectors has influenced the amenity-focused design of the ground plane and the considered facade modulation that will wrap the exterior of the building,” said Haddow.

The $172 million was approved by the state government in May and is expected to be open by 2025.

Local MP Adam Crouch said at the time of the approval that the hospital at Racecourse Road would improve health care access for the growing population.

“The former disused Ausgrid Depot will be transformed into this state-of-the-art health facility, which is vital given the population growth of 95,250 residents expected by 2041,” he said.

“The new hospital will be connected to Gosford by a shuttle bus, improvements to a nearby bus stop and more than 300 parking spaces for patients, visitors and front-line workers.”
