Welcome

Welcome

The Westmead Redevelopment will transform the iconic precinct into a contemporary and integrated centre which will continue to deliver high quality healthcare for decades to come.

We're creating a more workable, liveable and sustainable precinct and a world-class destination for health, research and education.

Stage 1 includes a new hospital building with new operating theatres, more inpatient beds, comprehensive care centres and more parking.
