Construction is now underway for The George Centre, a new $100 million private maternity and paediatric health facility being developed by Acurio Health in Gregory Hills, New South Wales.

The construction process is being undertaken by Buildcorp and is expected to be completed by mid-2023.

Scott Fowler CEO Acurio said the facility would provide a patient focused service, and will attract specialist doctors, allied health professionals and other clinicians.

“Once completed, The George Centre will deliver additional maternity and paediatric health and wellbeing services to the rapidly growing local community,” he said.

“It will complement existing services to help meet the family healthcare needs of Camden, Campbelltown and the surrounding community and will be the first private paediatric-focused healthcare facility in NSW.”

Work has already started on the foundations of the hospital, with large-scale earthmoving equipment and cranes already on site.

At its peak, 150 people are expected to be on site for the construction works, project- managed by a Buildcorp team.

Robert Lin, Chief Strategy Officer, Acurio Health and Project Lead for The George Centre said that major milestones for the project are expected to be reached before the end of the year.

“Over 13,000 cubic metres of material has already been moved off site to create the basement level. The aim is to have the ground floor poured before Christmas,” Lin said.

“Construction is on track in fact slightly ahead of schedule. The current environment will mean a significant proportion of our sub-contractors are residents from within the local LGA.”
