Did you see into the future in Hospital Week?

Our Hospital Week 2016 pop up booth


Last week, we debuted the Westmead Redevelopment virtual reality experience at Westmead’s Hospital Week.

The technology was demonstrated at a pop up event booth next to the permanent Info Hub in the Westmead Hospital foyer. Staff and community members stepped into Westmead’s future—in 360 degrees!

Wearers of the goggles could explore artist’s impressions of the Redevelopment. Images included the new forecourt and entry to the new hospital building, which is a shared space and will connect services between Westmead Hospital and The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. Other demonstrations were the reception area, patient waiting areas and the two storey linkway that connects the hospitals.

Thanks to everyone that stopped by! If you missed out on having a look through the goggles, we’ll let you know when they’ll make another appearance.
