How To Build A Hospital

The big picture

In order to get the planning right from the outset we have developed a robust collaborative planning framework to ensure the priorities and needs of the Randwick Health and Education Precinct, now and into the future, are thoroughly considered.

Randwick Health Collaboration

The South Eastern Sydney Local Health District and the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network have strengthened their alliance with UNSW to form the Randwick Health Collaboration which will support the Sydney Partnership for Health, Education, Research and Enterprise (SPHERE) in achieving its mission to:

  • Expand health, teaching and education services delivered from world class infrastructure.
  • Increase research capacity to improve care and innovation for patients and the community.
  • Be the catalyst for the creation of up to 15,000 new jobs and a major lever for economic stimulus.

Greater Randwick Urban Masterplan (GRUM)

The GRUM considers the Randwick Health and Education Precinct in the context of the surrounding area and supporting infrastructure at a local, city and regional level. The masterplan has been developed by the Randwick Health Collaboration as a high level urban framework to guide the priorities for investment in health and education services in the precinct and respond to the Greater Sydney Commission’s strategy for Eastern Sydney. The masterplan has been endorsed by precinct stakeholders, with support from Randwick City Council.

Randwick Academic Health Science Centre Masterplan (RAHSCM)

The RAHSCM has been developed to guide the staged development of the Randwick Hospitals' Campus. The plan aims to identify potential locations and services to meet future requirements of the Randwick Health and Education Precinct partners while considering the outcomes from the GRUM.

Where are we now?

The project team is working with clinicians, community and staff to prepare for the Detailed Design phase. This means we will delve into specific room and inpatient unit layouts. It also includes the development of the final facade of the building, and a complete list of technology, fixtures, furnishes and equipment.
