Paediatric Services Building

A significant expansion to children's health services in western Sydney will see the construction of a new clinical building and multi-storey car park to serve the existing and expanded Children’s Hospital, ensuring that young people continue to receive safe, high quality care that helps them live their healthiest lives.

The new Paediatric Services Building will provide new and expanded critical care and acute healthcare services and will include: 
  •     Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
  •     Paediatric Intensive Care Unit
  •     Cancer services
  •     Operating theatres
  •     Cardiac catheterisation and interventional laboratories
  •     Pharmacy
  •     Additional inpatient units. 

The new Paediatric Services Building will connect with the new Emergency Department, medical imaging and short stay unit delivered through Stage 1 of the redevelopment.

A new multi-storey car park will also be constructed to provide additional parking to address the growth in healthcare services, and replace parking lost in freeing-up the site for the project. Temporary parking arrangements are in place to ensure the overall number of spaces is maintained during redevelopment. 

Planning is now underway, and construction is expected to begin by early 2022. 

The NSW Government is investing $619 million to redevelop the Children’s Hospital at Westmead – Stage 2.

Three good reasons why we're expanding

Firstly, we need to respond to the sustained demand for both specialist and district level paediatric services for children across NSW and locally. Secondly, we need to ensure that The Children’s Hospital at Westmead continues to be a world leader in providing care for sick children across the state, and finally, we want to to further the Westmead Health Precinct as one of the largest health, research, education and training precincts in the world.
