Private hospital: Northside Medical Precinct unveiled at Gosford

A $350 million private hospital development has been announced in Gosford this morning.


The Northside Medical Precinct will be built at the old Ausgrid site on the corner of Faunce Rd and Racecourse Rd.

Once completed it would become the Central Coast’s largest private medical facility.

Northside Group and AA Crown Group have entered into an agreement to develop the site, located 600m from Gosford Hospital.

The hospital is expected to be up and running by 2022.

More than 2200 jobs would be created during construction and once completed, more than 460 permanent jobs will be generated.

The Northside Private Hospital will form the largest part of the precinct. The hospital development will include 14 operating theatres, 224 inpatient beds, an intensive care unit, radiology department, pathology centre, pharmacy and a mix of food and retail.

There will also be physiotherapy and rehabilitation clinics, a geriatric unit and a mental health unit.

The precinct is the vision of Central Coast developers Tim Gunasinghe (CommercialHQ) and Matthew Gibbens (Gibbens Group) and provides an opportunity for further medical and research expansion within the Gosford CBD.

“As we all know demand for the Central Coast is growing and the population, we are getting good population growth here and the demand for medical is very strong,” Mr Gunasinghe said.

“So we purchased this site prior to Christmas last year and went on our venture thinking how we could attract medical people to this area.”

Robertson federal Liberal MP Lucy Wicks said she was looking forward to seeing more cranes in the sky, more jobs for young people and more choices for people in terms of health care.

“It’s exciting to see investment brings more investment,” she said. “People are choosing Gosford; it’s amazing.”

She said the job opportunities were invaluable, and added to the 750 jobs to be provided by the medical school.

The 3.1ha precinct will also offer a range of new, purpose-built facilities including commercial, retail and residential spaces.

AA Crown Holdings have previously delivered Wollongong Private Hospital which is currently being operated by Ramsay Health.

The project will be delivered by the leading project team including Colliers International

(Development Manager and Leasing Agent), Donald Cant Watts Corke (Project & Cost Managers) and Health Project International (architects).

Marcelo Ramirez, from Colliers International said the growth in Gosford over the last 12 to 18 months, and redevelopment of Gosford Hospital, attracted them to the project.

“What we intend to build here is a hospital with approximately 224 patient beds, and we will have services such as radiology, mental health unit and intensive care unit,” he said.

“We expect that it’s going to generate to the local community about $54 million.”
