Refurbishments: the big picture

The new staff station in A3a - Westmead Hospital's new Gastroenterology Department

The refurbishment of A3a, Westmead Hospital’s gastroenterology new home, is part of a wider refurbishment program across the Westmead precinct, delivered through the Westmead Redevelopment.

The Westmead Hospital refurbishment program is transforming more than 30 per cent of clinical areas inside Westmead Hospital between 2017 and 2022. Clinical areas included in the program are aged care, gastroenterology, ear nose throat and audiology, ambulatory care, intensive care, respiratory and existing operating theatres.

Refurbishment projects completed to date are:

  • The expansion of the Emergency Short Stay Unit (ESSU) and Health Care for Older People Earlier (HOPE) unit
  • A new clinical simulation room for the University of Sydney’ Masters of Nursing
  • An activity based working area called the O3Hub
  • The Westmead Education and Conference Centre (WECC) level 1
  • Stage 1 of the Kid’s Research Institute (Stage 2 is expected to be complete in early 2018)

In an upcoming editions of the Project Update we will outline the overarching refurbishment timeline in more detail. Until then, read about projects delivered or in progress.
