The NSW Government is investing $720m to deliver a new Acute Services Building for Prince of Wales Hospital. The first stage is a catalyst project to deliver on the vision of building a world-class health, research and education precinct delivering cutting-edge, compassionate and holistic healthcare and wellness programs to the local community and other residents of NSW.
Arts and Culture Strategy
The Randwick Campus Redevelopment’s Arts and Culture Strategy has been developed in consultation with staff, students, patients, carers, families, visitors and community members and is guided by the 2016 NSW Health and The Arts Framework.
The IASB Addition will benefit patients, their families and the local community through embedding education, training and research initiatives with health services and strengthening links between clinicians and researchers. These interactions will provide important insights into the way healthcare is delivered as well as an opportunity to learn and improve the way healthcare is provided.
The Integrated Acute Services Building (IASB) Addition proposes a ten-level extension over
Hospital Road on the eastern side of the approved Acute Services Building. This fact sheet outlines the approach to construction for the IASB Addition including site map, construction activities, proposed site hours and environmental management controls.
The recently approved Prince of Wales Acute Services Building is proposed to be extended over Hospital Road enabling clinical innovation and research, biomedical engineering, and clinical translational research laboratories to be collocated directly alongside clinical staff providing acute healthcare services. A new State Significant Development application for the IASB Addition proposal has been submitted to Department of Planning, Industry and Environment and is now on public exhibition.
To enable construction of the Integrated Acute Services Building (IASB) Addition as well as future- proofing for the recently announced Sydney Children’s Hospital Stage 1, Comprehensive Children’s Cancer Centre and the Health Translation Hub, an 80 metre section of Hospital Road lowered and closed to through traffic.
The Acute Services Building and future stages of Randwick Campus Redevelopment provide an opportunity to significantly revitalise the area. Our guiding principles for the Redevelopment strive to contribute to an urban environment that is green and healthy, connected, integrated and responsive. The design of public open spaces and landscaping in and around the new Acute Services Building will help to create a contemporary Randwick Hospitals Campus.
