This month Healthscope joined the NSW Premier, Mike Baird and NSW Minister for Health, Jillian Skinner to celebrate the topping out ceremony for Sydney’s newest hospital – a building tradition which raises a tree to the top of a structure once construction reaches its highest point.
Healthscope Managing Director and CEO Robert Cooke said of Northern Beaches Hospital in Frenchs Forest:
"This is certainly a momentous occasion for Northern Beaches Hospital and testament to the great work of the entire project team who will soon deliver the world class, state-of-the-art hospital for the residents of the Northern Beaches.”
Almost one million worker hours have gone into getting the hospital to this stage, with much more to come in 2017 as the internal fit out really gets underway.
The hospital is on schedule to open in late 2018.
