The Liverpool Hospital, which serves the South Western Sydney Region, is a significant asset for Liverpool. The hospital has 23 operating theatres and capacity for 877 beds. Services include diagnostic and imaging services, emergency and trauma care, maternity, paediatric, cancer care, mental health and surgical services. The hospital underwent a $390million re-development in 2011 to make it one of Australia’s leading hospitals.
The Liverpool Health and Education Precinct is a cluster of innovative organisations in the Liverpool CBD. It includes the Liverpool Hospital, Ingham Institute of Applied Medical Research, a Clinical Skills and Simulation Centre, the clinical schools of the University of NSW and University of Western Sydney, South West Private Hospital and South Western Sydney TAFE.
Servicing a Rapidly Growing Population
The rapidly growing population of Liverpool is young, with an average age of 34 years but concurrently there will be a high demand for health and wellbeing services. In Liverpool, where 20 per cent of the population will be aged over 60 in 2031 (NSW Government, 2014), new urban release areas are creating opportunities for retirement and aged care residential developments.
