On Wednesday 8 March and Thursday 9 March the Westmead Redevelopment communications team ran a booth at the annual Healthcare Week conference at the new International Convention Centre in Sydney.
The event program included presentations by Danny O’Connor, chief executive Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD) and Peter Rophail, director of operational design at Blacktown and Mt Druitt Hospitals.
The event was an opportunity for Danny and Peter to discuss both redevelopments with members of the healthcare and government sector. Both presentations demonstrated the significant work undertaken by the WSLHD, particularly in relation to consumer and community partnerships and engagement and significant transformation of patient-centred care and experience through digital technologies.
The conference was attended by over 4,000 members of the healthcare industry. Attendees included hospital managers and executives, clinicians, GPs, government and administrative staff, architects, hospital construction companies and suppliers of healthcare goods and services.
