Westmead RedevelopmentThe Project

The Project

Health Infrastructure, working in partnership with the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network, is redeveloping The Children’s Hospital at Westmead to further enable the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network to help children and young people live their healthiest lives.

This significant expansion to paediatric health services in western Sydney will ensure The Children’s Hospital at Westmead continues to be a world leader in providing care for sick children across the state and will see the construction of a new paediatric services building and multi-storey car park to serve the existing and expanded Children’s Hospital.

The Children’s Hospital at Westmead – Stage 2 project furthers the Westmead Health Precinct as one of the largest health, research, education and training precincts in the world. The NSW Government is investing $619 million to redevelop the Children’s Hospital at Westmead – Stage 2.

The project will:

  • Respond to the sustained demand for both specialist and district level paediatric services for children across NSW and locally
  • Ensure The Children’s Hospital at Westmead continues to be a world leader in providing care for sick children across the state
  • Further the Westmead Health Precinct as one of the largest health, research, education and training precincts in the world.


The project includes a new paediatric services building which will be co-located with the new Emergency Department, medical imaging and short stay unit and delivered through Stage 1 of the redevelopment.

The new paediatric services building will provide new and expanded critical care and acute healthcare services and include:

  •     Operating theatres
  •     Cardiac catheterisation and interventional laboratories
  •     Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
  •     Paediatric Intensive Care Unit
  •     Cancer services
  •     Pharmacy
  •     Additional inpatient units.

A new multi-storey car park will also be constructed to provide additional parking to address the growth in healthcare services and replace parking lost in freeing-up the site for the project.
