Westmead redevelopment project

Transforming the Westmead Health Precinct into an innovative, contemporary and integrated community

As part of a program of improved healthcare facilities for patients, families and staff across the Sydney Children's Hospitals Network – the redevelopment program will deliver new and expanded health services for our state’s children.

Why is the Redevelopment needed?

Stage 1: Central Acute Services Building (complete)

The Children's Hospital at Westmead's redevelopment program reached its first major milestone on Tuesday, 9 March when the new Emergency Department, Children's Short Stay Unit as well as medical imaging and pharmacy to support those services, opened in the Westmead Health Precinct's newest building.

The building, a partnership between Western Sydney Health District, Sydney Children's Hospitals Network and the University of Sydney is the first facility in New South Wales to feature integrated health services for children and adults.

Stage 2: Paediatric Services Building (planning & design)

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, will feature an expansion of acute paediatric services. This includes Operating Theatres, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Paediatric Intensive Care Unit, Cancer services and Pharmacy.

In November 2020, Minister for Health Brad Hazzard unveiled a first look at the new Paediatric Services Building

Where are we up to now?

Parramatta Light Rail

Improved public transport at Westmead will see the introduction of Parramatta Light Rail and a new metro station

The Parramatta Light Rail will have a number of sections where it will be free from overhead wires to seamlessly integrate with the surrounding environment.

The 12-kilometre, $2.4 billion Parramatta Light Rail will connect Westmead to Carlingford via the Parramatta CBD and Camellia, and is expected to commence services in 2023.
