A true community hospital


“Since Healthscope were awarded the contract for Northern Beaches Hospital in Sydney, we have grown a special partnership between our High School and the healthcare provider. It’s been two years since that partnership began and as immediate site neighbours, much has been achieved.

“The build has been carefully managed so there hasn’t been any dust or noise issues, including throughout the HSC period. In fact we get far more noise from the traffic on the main road than from the hospital construction.

“I want to sincerely thank Healthscope for their contributions to student vocational and academic learning. It has been fantastic to have a partnership that provides such rich opportunities for our students.

“Some highlights of the year have been - the site visits for students and staff, health and healing picture book project, photography competition, sponsorship of school awards and mock employment interviews.

“We are so appreciative of your support and the enriched learning that has resulted from our partnership and long may this continue after the hospital opens in 2018.”
