Premier Mike Baird, NSW Treasurer Gladys Berejiklian and NSW Health Minister Jillian Skinner visited Westmead Hospital on June 15 to announce that $60.5 million will be spent on the new Acute Services Building and $38.8 million on the new car park.
Mr Baird said Westmead was the biggest hospital redevelopment in NSW.
"This is the biggest hospital redevelopment in the country," he said.
"It is much more than just a hospital. What we're creating here is what I strongly believe to be the best health city in the country and one of the best in the world.
"This redevelopment is a game changer for western Sydney and NSW and will boast the largest concentration of biomedical, scientific and healthcare-focused minds in the nation."
The money is part of the $900 million the government has already committed to the Westmead Redevelopment, including:
Mrs Berejiklian said the state-of-the-art car parking facility was a much-needed addition to the site.
"We know with all sites and hospital redevelopments, a car park is a critical part," she said.
Mrs Skinner said Westmead Hospital would be a hospital of the future for the growing population of western Sydney.
The Westmead precinct has a full time workforce of more than 17,000 people, which is expected to increase to 25,000 by 2036.
