Westmead Redevelopment project

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

Centrepiece of the Westmead Redevelopment, the new Central Acute Services Building (CASB) is the first facility in NSW to feature integrated health services for children and adults.

When the CASB opens in early 2021, it will be a shared building with The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Western Sydney Local Health District and the University of Sydney, delivering high-quality healthcare for decades to come.

For sick kids, it will mean a new Emergency Department, Children's Short Stay Unit, digital operating theatres and additional pharmacy and medical imaging facilities.

As part of a program of improved healthcare facilities for patients, families and staff across the network – the CASB is set to deliver new and expanded health services for our state’s children.

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 and Pharmacy.

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

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