Westmead Redevelopment project

The Westmead Redevelopment will transform the precinct into an innovative, contemporary and integrated centre delivering high-quality healthcare for decades to come.

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.

In March 2019, the NSW Government announced $619 million for a new Paediatric Services Building and car parking for The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

The new Paediatric Services Building, pending business case approval, is expected to feature an expansion of acute paediatric services. This includes Operating Theatres, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Paediatric Intensive Care Unit, Cancer services, Pharmacy

Like at Randwick, improved public transport will see the introduction of Parramatta Light Rail and a new metro station

Parking at Westmead

Stacked parking, managed by our friendly parking attendants, has been implemented in our visitors' car park to improve access to parking for our patients and families. If you do experience delays in the car park, please ask the attendants to direct you to other nearby public parking locations at nearby Westmead Hospital.

If you are coming for an appointment or to visit a patient, where possible, leave yourself extra time to get to the Hospital.
