Planning and redevelopment
Both our hospital precincts are being transformed into world-class health research, education and teaching hubs.
More than $3 billion has been committed by the NSW and Federal Governments, universities and the private sector to upgrade and expand the Randwick and Westmead precincts over the next few years.

More than $1.5 billion has been committed to redevelopment projects at the Randwick Hospitals Campus. This includes the construction of a new $720 million building for Prince of Wales Hospital, a $608 million building for Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick and a $250 million Health Translation Hub for UNSW.
These projects will improve health services, access and the overall hospital experience for patients and families. It will allow better integration between our hospital, The Prince of Wales Hospital, Royal Hospital for Women, and the UNSW campus.
It will be a place where research, health technologies, and education intersect to provide the best in health care for babies through to the elderly.
As the first step in planning for the new building at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick, we are working with patients, families, staff and consumers to better understand the needs of those who use our hospital.
Responses from our quick 10-minute survey will help us plan and prioritise.
The Children's Hospital at Westmead
At Westmead, the $1 billion Westmead Redevelopment project will see the new Central Acute Services Building opening in 2020, a shared building with The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Westmead Hospital and University of Sydney. For sick kids, it accommodates a new Emergency Department, short-stay inpatient unit, operating theatres and satellite services for pharmacy and medical imaging. A paediatric services building has also recently been announced and planning has commenced.
Like at Randwick, improved public transport will see the introduction of Parramatta Light Rail and a new metro station.
