Planning and redevelopment

Westmead and Randwick are transforming into world-leading precincts for health and wellbeing, research, education and teaching.

Westmead is one of the largest health and education precincts in Australia with four major hospitals, three world leading medical research institutes and major tertiary education institutions with campuses on the precinct.

These businesses work together in an integrated and co-ordinated way to deliver world-class innovation and services for NSW and Australia.

More than $3billion has been committed by government, universities and the private sector to upgrade and expand the precinct over the next few years. This includes the $1billion Westmead Redevelopment project which will see the construction of a new shared hospital building which will accommodate our new Emergency Department, a short stay inpatient unit, shared operating theatres and satellite services for pharmacy and medical imaging.

Transport links are also being transformed at Westmead with the introduction of Parramatta Light Rail, a confirmed stop for Westmead on Metro West and the first stage of Western Sydney Rail; a connection for Westmead and Parramatta to the new western Sydney airport.

At Randwick, the NSW Government is investing $720million to redevelop and progress the vision of the Randwick Campus. The first major investment is a new acute services building.

The project will help us keep pace with growth and improve health services, access and the overall hospital experience for patients and families. It will also better integrate the major hospitals on campus, better integrate healthcare, research, education and training and support a technology-led campus.

Light Rail construction is also well underway at Randwick, with the completion of the CBD and South East Light Rail project due for completion in 2019.
