Robert tours Northern Beaches Hospital

Healthscope Managing Director and CEO Robert Cooke joined Northern Beaches Hospital Project Director Deborah Latta on site 5 October to see how the build is taking shape.

The 488-bed hospital is now up to the sixth floor of the nine-storey building, with construction well and truly on schedule.

About 450 workers are on site to make sure that the 50-bed emergency department, on site medical centre, specialist suites and rooms for the full range of clinical services are ready to go when the hospital opens in late 2018.

Robert explained that it's really impressive to see this fantastic Sydney hospital coming out of the ground so fast.

"Healthscope has put a great deal of work into planning the design of this hospital to make sure that staff have the best possible facility from which to provide comprehensive, quality services. From 2018, Healthscope wants public and private patients to have the best healthcare right on their doorstep and this hospital will get us there," said Robert.
