community members go behind-the-scenes

Around 300 curious members of the Randwick community were given the unique opportunity to tour the ASB, as part of a Community Open Day on Thursday 9 February.

Guided tours kicked off in the main entrance foyer, taking the public first to the new Emergency Department, followed by the Acute Aged Care inpatient unit and finishing with the Intensive Care Unit.

Throughout the tour, demonstrations by expert clinical staff helped explain the type of patient care that will take place in key areas of the hospital.

Attendees were able to learn about the updated infrastructure, new technology and new models of care.

The Community Open Day was an important initiative to increase public awareness of the ASB, and give local community a chance to understand more about the new building before it becomes operational. 

Some Prince of Wales Hospital services are relocating to the new Acute Services Building from late February 2023. Learn which services are moving and when.
