Community input into the planning, design and delivery of the $940 million RPA Hospital Redevelopment is essential to create a welcoming facility that meets the healthcare needs of the community that RPA Hospital serves, well into the future.

Since the beginning of March 2020, the RPA Hospital Redevelopment has actively engaged with our staff, consumers, community and local stakeholders to ensure we are building a hospital that meets healthcare needs of the district and is design to make everyone feel safe, welcome, and comfortable.

Engagement launched with a survey between March and April 2022 that captured early feedback from staff and community on what they wanted for the redevelopment and built awareness of the project. Responses from the survey were overwhelmingly positive and provided critical insights that have informed the design process since.

In September 2022 we unveiled the Concept Design, with the project team delivering a number of online and in-person consultation sessions with community, staff and consumers to capture important feedback on the concept design and inform next steps.

In late September 2022 information was shared with staff, community and neighbours detailing the temporary relocation of the RPA helicopter landing site. This consultation was targeted and provided information around the plans for the relocation, its impacts and fostered an important ongoing conversation with those impacted or involved with the relocation.

In November, Indigenous construction company Barpa Pty Ltd was awarded an enabling works contract in a significant milestone for the redevelopment of the Royal Prince Alfred (RPA) Hospital.

Following the announcement, Uncle Brendan Kerin from the NSW Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council led a traditional smoking ceremony which prepares the land as a safe and welcoming place for all those who are working on it.  RPA Hospital has a long history of working in partnership with our community.

The project will continue to engage with and seek consultation with staff, consumers and the community to understand the needs of our services and departments and ensure the hospital is purpose built to meet the growing healthcare needs of everyone who connects with RPA.
