The event began with a Smoking Ceremony and Welcome to Country, led by local Aboriginal Elders, Aunty Lola Ryan and Leslie McLeod. After unveiling the plaque that will be permanently displayed in the front entrance foyer, Minister Park visited the new Community Assessment Unit and Community Management Centre to meet with staff and patients.

The event was attended by the Prince of Wales Hospital and South Eastern Sydney Local Health District Executive, as well as project partners and consumers who played a key role in the design and construction of the hospital building over the years.

The celebrations continued into the afternoon, with an all-staff afternoon tea hosted in the building’s spacious mezzanine space.


"I express my gratitude to every person that has been involved in bringing our new hospital to life,” said Jennie Barry, General Manager for Prince of Wales Hospital.  

“The official opening of the Acute Services Building is an enormous milestone for Prince of Wales Hospital, following a seven-year redevelopment project.

“The new facility will support new and innovative approaches to acute healthcare and transform health, research and education at the Randwick Health & Innovation Precinct for years to come,” said Jennie.
