After breaking ground on the expansion of Siemens Healthineers manufacturing and R&D center in Walpole, Mass. this summer, Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. was tapped by New South Wales Health Infrastructure as lead architect for its redevelopment of Sydney’s Concord Hospital.

Jacobs was previously selected by New South Wales Health Infrastructure to carry out all the architectural work for Sydney’s Blacktown Hospital. 

Leader in Healthcare Design

The $270 million project involves the development of a new comprehensive cancer center, enhanced ambulatory care services, additional inpatient capacity and Australia’s first comprehensive care center for retired service men, women and their families, dubbed the Rusty Priest Centre for Rehabilitation and Aged Care. The facility will also offer substance and alcohol abuse programs, specialist pain management, rehabilitation, services for mild traumatic brain injury, psychological well-being and family support. 

“This win reinforces our global reputation as a leader in healthcare facility design,” said Patrick Hill, senior vice president of buildings and infrastructure Asia Pacific for Jacobs, in prepared remarks. “Concord has a long history of caring for veterans and their families, and we look forward to leveraging our health infrastructure knowledge in developing a facility that acknowledges their contribution and provides the patient care they need.”
