Construction of the $780 million Prince of Wales Hospital Integrated Acute Services Building (IASB) has reached its highest point, marking a key milestone for the Randwick Campus Redevelopment.
The new state-of-the-art hospital building, delivered under a partnership between the NSW Government and UNSW Sydney, is a key feature of the $1.5 billion Randwick Health & Innovation Precinct, which includes an investment of more than $1 billion from the NSW Government.
The IASB is a catalyst project for expanding the world-class health, research and education facilities at the Randwick precinct.
The new IASB for Prince of Wales Hospital includes:
- new emergency department
- extra inpatient beds (an increase of 17% increase in bed capacity)
- new Intensive Care Unit
- four new digital operating theatres
- expanded central sterilising services department
- new psychiatric emergency care centre
- haematology and oncology
- aged care (acute and sub-acute)
- respiratory medicine and infectious diseases
- neurosciences floor that will incorporate an acute stroke unit, neurology and neurosurgical beds and complex epilepsy service
- new helipad
The new building on track to open in late 2022 and is estimated to support approximately 600 direct jobs.
Under the next phase of the Randwick Campus Redevelopment, Sydney Children’s’ Hospital Stage 1 and the Children’s Comprehensive Cancer Centre are on track to be completed in 2025 and UNSW Health Translation Hub is scheduled to open in 2026.
