The Randwick Hospitals Campus includes the Prince of Wales hospital, which is major teaching hospital located in the eastern suburbs of Sydney. In March 2015, the NSW Government committed $500 million, sourced from the Rebuilding NSW fund, for the reconfiguration and expansion of the hospital. This will be the first major upgrade of the hospital in 20 years. The Government committed a further $220 million to the campus redevelopment in the 2017-18 State Budget.
Stage 1 of the redevelopment will include a new acute services building comprising:
- Emergency department;
- Extra beds:
- Rehabilitation and ambulatory care facilities; and
- Shared operating theatres.
The final business case for the acute services building was submitted to the NSW Government at the end of 2017. Early works are planned to begin in late 2018.
An application for Stage 1 to be state significant infrastructure was made in February 2018, and the Secretary's Environmental Assessment Requirements (SEARs) were issued in March 2018. The next step is for the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to be prepared and then disclosed for public consultation.
In the interim, before Stage 1 is completed, the existing emergency department at Prince of Wales will be expanded and refurbished to meet current demand. In November 2017, Fugen Constructions was awarded the $3 million contract, and construction is expected to take 12 months.
In addition, a masterplan for a dedicated mental health precinct has been completed, however this is not part of the current stage. It may form part of future projects.
