New Palliative Care Centre at Concord

Palliative Care Centre design has begun

Palliative Care is an important and natural process in life and the Concord Palliative Care Centre’s role is one with the intention of managing a patients final phase of their disease with dignity, free of pain, without prolonging life nor hastening its end. It is to be a place for patients, their carers and relatives to be cared for, both medically and psychologically. 

In July 2010, Sydney Local Health Network received capital funding to develop a 15 bed sub-acute unit at Concord Repatriation General Hospital (CRGH) and additional recurrent funding from the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) for 15 sub-acute beds at CRGH. Internal consultation concluded that the greatest need was to develop a 20 bed sub-acute palliative care inpatient unit at CRGH to service patients located in the Inner West of Sydney.

Brewster Hjorth Architects have been engaged to produce a sensitive and state of the art design for the new centre, looking at ways to develop the hospital’s masterplan to optimize access, sunlight and increase the comfort of patients.
