In the lead up to the 2019 NSW State election, the NSW and Federal governments, along with other donors, made a commitment of $608 million to build Australia's first Comprehensive Children's Cancer Centre (CCCC), and to rebuild the Children's Hospital in Randwick. The re-election of the Government means the project will go ahead. The Federal Government also confirmed its commitment of $100 million towards the project in the 2019-20 Federal Budget.
The funding is made up of:
- $428 million from the NSW Liberal-Nationals Coalition Government
- $100 million from the Commonwealth Government
- $30 million from the University of New South Wales
- $25 million from Sydney Children's Hospital Foundation, and
- $25 million from Children's Cancer Institute.
The new Cancer Centre will bring together clinical care, research and teaching. The project will be built over two levels. The ground floor will host a new Emergency Department and new short stay units. The level above will house the CCCC.
The rebuild of the Children's Hospital will expand and integrate it with a new Acute Services Building and the $250 million Translational Hub that is being funded by the University of NSW.
This funding commitment is in addition to $720 million being put towards the redevelopment of Prince of Wales Hospital, bringing the total funding contribution for the Randwick site to $1.3 billion.
The 2019-20 NSW Budget indicated that the project would commence in the three years following FY2019-20 and that funding would be allocated towards planning and development. However, funding allocations beyond initial planning in FY2019-20 are not provided in the budget.
In September 2020, the NSW Government announced $60 million additional funding over the next two years to fast-track the Children's Cancer Centre and Randwick Children's Hospital Rebuild project. The funding will be drawn from the NSW Government's $3 billion Jobs and Infrastructure Acceleration Fund.
