How To Build A Hospital

Building a great hospital takes more than concrete and cranes. You need ideas, people and time. That's why we're talking to staff, patients, carers and the community. We're taking the time to plan well. We're thinking ahead. Here's how we're going to do it.

We're creating a number of videos in the series called How to Build a Hospital. Each video is loaded to our Westmead Redevelopment YouTube channel. There, you'll see playlists sorting our videos into categories.
