The redevelopment of Westmead is transforming the iconic complex into an innovative, contemporary and integrated centre which will continue to deliver high quality healthcare for decades to come.
We're close to finishing the early and enabling works stage of the project, which will open up the site of the new acute services building as we commence our main works stage.
The early and enabling works project has also included demolition, roadworks, internal support service expansions and a critical upgrade of power, water, gas and other essential services to secure our infrastructure needs in the future.
Electrical upgrades have been completed to increase the reliability and capacity of the electrical supply for existing buildings and future developments on the precinct.
Over the next decade, Westmead will grow to serve the health care needs of close to two million people in western Sydney.
With some of Sydney's busiest hospitals, we need to maintain services during our redevelopment and that means carefully staging projects so there is as little disruption as possible to patients, carers, staff and visitors.
