Building better

  • Better Together: improving mealtime experiences

    Have you or someone in your care stayed at our hospital recently? We want to hear from you about your mealtime experience!
  • Artwork honours hospital heroes

    Have you seen our new environmental murals in Block K, as part of The Children's Hospital at Westmead? The graphics were sparked by the Sydney Children's Hospitals Foundation (SCHF) capital campaign and are the most significant donor recognition project the hospital has ever undertaken.
  • Workshops explore local Aboriginal art and culture

    Young people from the hospital's chronic illness support groups learnt the traditional Aboriginal art forms of shellwork and ochre painting at recent workshops. The sessions are aligned with an Aboriginal Engagement Strategy followed by the redevelopment team, which aims to include Aboriginal voices in all project stages to achieve an inclusive and culturally safe hospital.
  • Nature and healing nurtured at Aboriginal gathering spaces

    The Sydney Children's Hospitals Network (SCHN) redevelopment team has been working with Aboriginal patients, families and staff to boost access to culturally safe spaces at the new hospital buildings - to improve health outcomes in the Aboriginal community.

  • Families shape Randwick's future CICU

    The Children’s Intensive Care Unit and Redevelopment teams have been working with families and our architect to ensure the project improves the patient and family experience, enables new models of care and transforms health outcomes for children.
