Long Bay Hospital
Planning for the new Long Bay Hospital began in 1998 and in July 2006 the NSW Department of Planning approved the funds for the commencement of this major capital works project.
The new Long Bay Hospital is a collaborative public private partnership project between Corrective Services NSW, Justice & Forensic Mental Health Network and PPP Solutions Inc. The Hospital is an 85 bed facility located on the Long Bay Complex site. The hospital has three distinct Units: Mental Health Unit - 40 beds, Medical Subacute Unit - 30 beds, Aged Care and Rehabilitation Unit - 15 beds. The new facility provides an improved standard of accommodation for patients requiring both medical and mental health treatment. The design of the facility caters to both male and female inpatients without disadvantage and is accessible to all adults throughout the NSW correctional system.
The new facility is a strategic step forward for both Justice & Forensic Mental Health Network and Corrective Services NSW enabling these partner organisations to respond effectively to the complex health needs of the inmate population of NSW to provide international best practice health care for those in custody.
