Redevelopment Opens

A multimillion-dollar redevelopment and expansion of Lawrence Hargrave Private Hospital was completed in October 2009, enabling the hospital to provide expanded state-of-the-art rehabilitation facilities to patients in the Illawarra district.

The construction, costing $9 million, has significantly expanded and improved the hospital’s inpatient facilities with new accommodation as well as improved outpatient and consulting facilities.

The cornerstone of the redevelopment was the expansion of the hospital’s inpatient facilities seeing the hospital grow to 54 beds – the majority of these being private rooms with ensuites.


The hospital was originally a nursing home in the 1970’s and was purchased and renovated as a rehabilitation hospital in 1981. Lawrence Hargrave Private Hospital was named after the Australian pioneer of aviation, Lawrence Hargrave. The hospital is now owned by Ramsay Health Care Limited who boasts a high-quality portfolio of strategically located hospitals and an excellent record in hospital management and patient care, which combine to attract Australia’s leading medical, nursing, and allied health practitioners.
