On Tuesday 25 May 2021 Health Minister Brad Hazzard visited the John Hunter Hospital to unveil the schematic designs of the expansion of the John Hunter and John Hunter Children’s Hospitals which will deliver a broad range of services as the centerpiece of the John Hunter Health and Innovation Precinct.
The schematic design process looks at the building in greater detail, examining the positioning and internal configuration of each of the clinical service areas. It provides clinicians, operational staff and other stakeholders with an increased understanding of what John Hunter Health and Innovation Precinct will look like, how it will work, and how the departments will interconnect.
The schematic design also develops the external and internal building finishes, and the overall landscape solution.
The designs have been included as part of the State Significant Development Application which were lodged with the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment and exhibited on the Department’s website
for the public’s feedback until Monday 28 June 2021.
