State-of-the-art pathology laboratory opens at Nepean Hospital

A new state-of-the-art pathology laboratory at Nepean Hospital is providing staff the latest in cutting-edge medical technology to perform vital diagnostic testing.

PATHOLOGY is a crucial tool in detecting, diagnosing and treating disease, as well as an important aspect of managing long-term medical conditions

The new facility was officially opened by Minister for Health, Ryan Park and is one of the first NSW Health Pathology laboratories to be fitted with advanced new chemical pathology analysers.

The lab will provide a range of common tests such as liver and kidney function tests and diabetes monitoring.

At around 1.5 times larger than the previous laboratory, the expanded lab will revolutionise the way staff work and enhance the services and facilities available to patients being treated at the Hospital.

The new Nepean Hospital Pathology Laboratory is part of a $29 million investment in NSW Health laboratories across western Sydney and regional NSW.

The Pathology Laboratory was fast-tracked as part of Stage 2 development of the $1 billion Nepean Hospital redevelopment.

Construction for Stage 2 of the Nepean Redevelopment is currently underway and is scheduled for completion in 2026.
