About our redevelopment
The NSW Government has committed $750 million to the redevelopment of Royal Prince Alfred (RPA) Hospital to deliver a new hospital building and refurbishment of existing spaces. 

This is the most significant investment in RPA’s 140-year history to support the world-leading services provided at RPA for the 700,000 people who live in Sydney Local Health District and the more than 1 million people who come into the District each day to work, study and visit.

When complete, the RPA Redevelopment will deliver:
  • Expanded and enhanced Emergency Department and Intensive Care Units
  • State-of-the-art operating theatres and interventional cardiology
  • Expanded and improved adult inpatient accommodation
  • Increased interventional and imaging services
  • Expanded women’s ambulatory and neonatology services
  • Facilities and capabilities for integrated research, education and training
  • Additional adult and paediatric inpatient beds
  • Improved public domain and services including roads, wayfinding, landscaping and information and communications technology infrastructure.
