Unveiling St John of God Richmond Hospital’s Redevelopment 

112 private bedrooms with ensuites and associated amenities to enable connection and recovery  

Set on 25-acres of parkland with views to the Blue Mountains, St John of God Richmond Hospital’s calming new 112-bed hospital provides mental health care for returned veterans, first responders and the general community.

Historic Belmont House has been preserved and is central to the new campus design accommodating group therapy rooms. 

“The facilities we are showcasing today have been developed to help people overcome the disconnection and isolation that comes with mental illness and assist with reconnecting to family and friends,” said St John of God Health Care Group CEO Bryan Pyne. 

The Most Reverend Vincent Long Van Nguyen OFM Conv, Bishop of Parramatta blessed the redevelopment, and the blessing and official opening was attended by General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK AC (Mil) CVO MC (Retd), St John of God Health Care Trustee Chair Hon Neville Owen AO, KCSG, St John of God Health Care Board Chair Hon Kerry Sanderson AC and Group CEO Bryan Pyne, invited guests and clients.

The other facilities unveiled include the neurostimulation suite which will provide innovative, modern and safe electro-convulsive therapy and transcranial magnetic stimulation services and the new dining pavilion which features a light and airy dining space and an inviting café for clients, caregivers and visitors.  

In August 2023, we celebrated the completion of the Wellness Centre which features a gym, group room for yoga, meditation and indoor pool. 

Congratulations to STH and our project team for delivering this major milestone.
