Hundreds hear about redevelopment during Hospital Week

Westmead Hospital's admissions team picked up redevelopment drink bottles

The Westmead Redevelopment project team were on-hand during Hospital Week (August 29 – 31) to give away some goodies, while updating staff, patients and visitors on progress of the new hospital building.

The team spoke to nearly 500 staff, patients, carers, students, researchers and visitors across the week about the redevelopment, offering updates on everything from construction to arts and culture and broader transport links across the Westmead precinct.

Project merchandise, including water bottles, pens and Keep Cups, were flying out of the Information Hub at the main entrance as visitors gathered to grab a purple tote bag and some goodies.

The project’s director of communications and engagement Emma Spillett said she was overwhelmed with the response to the pop-up sessions.

“It was fantastic to have so many people stopping to chat about the project, and showing a genuine interest in what is happening across the campus,” she said.

“The majority of the visitors to the sessions were regular readers of our weekly project update and were really excited about the project and the new hospital building.

“We’ve just ordered a new batch of merchandise too for all those people who missed out on our coveted Keep Cups and water bottles!”

Hospital Week is held annually at Westmead Hospital in August and aims to bring together Australia’s leading health minds for a series of presentations on the latest medical advancements.
