Healthone Orchard Hills

Demographic & Development Outlook

This study was prepared by HillPDA for Health Infrastructure NSW to provide advice on the planning and development outlook for a study area centred on Orchard Hills. The information provided in the report assisted Health Infrastructure NSW to determine an appropriate location for a proposed new Health One facility, which delivers integrated primary health and community care services. The study included:

  • A review of future land release near the study area, including medium to long term release to coincide with the Greater Sydney growth area program
  • A development pipeline review, with indicators of dwelling numbers and type, with reference to existing health infrastructure
  • An audit of employment land, residential, nearby facilities and environmental constraints, which accounts for a broad range of stakeholders
  • An assessment matrix that compared potential areas against suitability factors (such as age, population growth, socioeconomic disadvantage).

As a value add, the project was managed and delivered by a principal of HillPDA. The assessment matrix was bespoke and tailored to meet the needs of Health Infrastructure NSW.


Findings from the study built an information base from which Health Infrastructure NSW could determine a location. HillPDA offered three options for suitable locations.


  • Demographic analysis
  • Supply forecasting
  • Strategic asset advisory
  • Social planning
  • Social infrastructure
  • Market appraisal
