Pathology Department

About this project

Penrith and Blue Mountains communities will soon benefit from more pathology laboratories and services, with construction underway on a new, expanded pathology department as part of the $1 billion Nepean Hospital Redevelopment.

The new pathology department is being fast tracked as part of Stage 2 of the redevelopment, which will provide the Penrith and Blue Mountains communities with access to world-class health services well into the future.

The department will be in a larger, purpose-built facility and provide significantly expanded pathology services to meet the needs of the growing local communities and boost health outcomes in the region.

Construction of the pathology department in a newly built facility in Building E (East Block) will include new laboratories, services, a reception area and administration spaces.

The facility is scheduled for completion in mid-2023.
