About the project


The Randwick Campus Redevelopment is an important first step to transform health services for the Randwick community.

A new Acute Services Building for Prince of Wales Hospital will be built to the west of the existing Randwick Hospitals Campus that will include:
  • Expanded adult emergency department
  • Expanded psychiatric emergency care centre
  • Expanded intensive care unit
  • New medical assessment unit including a virtual care centre
  • Replacement of existing inpatient wards and provision of additional inpatient beds providing contemporary facilities for the following specialties:
    • Haematology and Oncology,
    • Aged Care (Acute and Sub Acute),
    • Orthogeriatrics,
    • Respiratory Medicine and Infectious Diseases,
    • the Acute Spinal Unit, and
    • a Neurosciences floor that will incorporate an expanded Acute Stroke Unit, Neurology and Neurosurgical beds and the Complex Epilepsy Service.
  • New digital operating theatres equipped with state-of-the-art technology for neuroscience surgery and complex orthopedics, including major spinal surgery
  • A new and expanded central sterilising service department and a new helipad serving the Randwick Hospitals Campus
  • Teaching, education and research spaces integrated with clinical areas to support collaborative medical research.

The redevelopment will also enable education, training and research to be more closely integrated into the health care services provided across the precinct and expand the Ambulatory care facilities after the opening of the new Acute Services Building in 2022.  A masterplan for a dedicated mental health precinct has been completed.

We see this as an opportunity to define the long-term direction for the new Precinct so that we can lead and shape the future of health for Randwick, address demand and ensure greater Sydney will have access to world-leading, innovative healthcare.

The Randwick Campus Redevelopment is being driven by:

  • The need for a safe, efficient and quality service: About 60% of the buildings on the current hospital campus are over 30 years old. This is impacting the quality and cost of service delivery.
  • The need to integrate health services and research: Quality health services emerge from cutting-edge research and teaching and is enhanced by bringing innovative research to the bedside.  
  • The need to plan effectively for the future: Integrating the planning of health and education facilities will improve services, and create high-value jobs and liveable places that support a growing Sydney.
