Hawkesbury District Health Service To Become Known As Hawkesbury District Hospital

Written by: The Hawkesbury Phoenix


Signage and uniforms will change with the name change for Hawkesbury District Health Service, but the high level of patient care and welcoming spirit will remain.

From July 1, operation and management of Hawkesbury District Health Service (HDHS) will transition from St John of God Health Care to Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District (NBMLHD) and be known as Hawkesbury District Hospital.

The name acknowledges the organisation’s history and its strong community connections while also aligning with the naming conventions for NSW Health and NBMLHD hospitals.

Most importantly for patients and the community, there will be no changes in services offered by the hospital from July 1.

It will continue to provide 24-hour emergency medicine, maternity care, allied health support plus a host of other services the community has come to love and expect.

While in the coming weeks there will be some physical changes to things such as hospital signage and uniforms, the highest levels of patient care and the wonderful, welcoming spirit of the Hawkesbury will remain.

The continuity of safe and compassionate care is a focus for NBMLHD to ensure a smooth transition for patients and staff.
