Have a say on the new hospital building at Westmead

Families, patients and staff are invited to have their say about some of the most important equipment to go into new paediatric clinical spaces at The Children's Hospital at Westmead as part of the $1 billion Westmead Redevelopment Project.

The cornerstone of this redevelopment is the Central Acute Services Building, a brand-new 14-storey hospital building which will be shared by The Children's Hospital at Westmead, Westmead Hospital and The University of Sydney.

The new building is due to open in late-2020, and includes a new Children's Emergency Department. As part of this transition, the Westmead Redevelopment team is hosting Furniture, Fixtures and Fittings Open Days, so patients, families and staff can provide feedback on the trauma trolley beds, recliner trolleys and recliners for the children's clinical spaces.

The Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment Open Days will be held at the Prototype Rooms, Westmead Precinct. Everyone who visits will be welcome to put their feet up and trial the furniture before filling out a survey to gauge their thoughts on comfort, durability, fit-for-purpose and function.

Westmead Redevelopment Project Director of Furniture, Fixtures & Equipment Leanne Creighton said the two-day display provided a unique opportunity to put the products to the test.

“It’s your chance to have your say and help shape our future direction,” Leanne said. “The open days offer everyone a chance to have input into their building. Your opinion matters and your vote will count.”
