This case study describes the process and results of a prospective health impact assessment that was conducted on a major hospital redevelopment in NSW. Undertaking the health impact assessment has raised awareness of the potential intended and unintended consequences of redevelopment in relation to health. It has also enhanced the capacity and commitment for health impact assessment within the Area Health Service.
