Key Dates

2026: Estimated construction completion




SA Government: $685 million AUD

The South Australian Government allocated $5.25 million over four years to the planning and design of a new Women's and Children's Hospital in the 2018-19 Budget. The Government also established a high-level task-force, made up of key stakeholders across the sector, to drive the planning process.

The 2018-19 Budget does not allocate funding to the construction of the new hospital, but rather states that a funding provision is being held centrally. The funding provision assumes a traditional build, however the Government has not ruled out a public private partnership. The final procurement method will be determined during the planning process.

The 2019-20 SA Budget provided a $550 million provision to the project for planning and early works.

The 2020-21 SA State Budget outlined a $685 million provision for the project, an increase from the $550 million outlined in the previous budget. The total cost will be confirmed in the final business case. The Budget also allocated $23.5 million in FY2020-21 to continue planning and consultation for the new hospital.
