CLOSER TO ENDING HOSPITAL FRUSTRATION

GOSFORD’S Hospital’s new staff and public car park has reached its highest point, bringing the $35.5M project a step closer to completion – and it can’t come quickly enough for frustrated hospital visitors.

 

As vehicles circle the existing multi-level (which is only four public parking levels) for up to 40 minutes waiting for a space, the opening of the new 805 space structure still seems a long way off, with completion expected sometime early next year.
 
“The car park is expected to be fully complete by early 2019, at which point the total number of car spaces at the hospital will be over 1,400,” Terrigal state Liberal MP Adam Crouch said.
 
“Special features of the new car park will include electronic messaging signs to let drivers know the number of spaces available – a feature that will also be fitted to the existing multi-storey.”
 
The six-storey car park has been built from road level on Showground Road, so the rooftop sits level with Holden Street and the hospital entry.
 
The project also includes construction of a new patient drop-off zone on Showground Road, with pedestrian access into, and around, the hospital site including a covered walkway between the car park and Main Entry.
 
The car park project is in addition to the $348 million Gosford Hospital redevelopment, with the recently completed 11-storey tower including a new expanded emergency department, maternity services, intensive care unit, operating theatres and medical imaging services.
 
Work is being carried out in existing parts of the hospital to refurbish spaces for allied health, cancer day unit, emergency short stay unit and cardiovascular services with full redevelopment set for completion by late 2019.
