New images unveiled at the Sydney Children's Hospital and Cancer Centre Randwick

New images have been unveiled showcasing the welcoming and home-like interiors at Sydney Children’s Hospital Stage 1 and Minderoo Children’s Comprehensive Cancer Centre, where major construction is underway. 

The purpose-built facility is being delivered by Health Infrastructure in partnership with the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network, Children’s Cancer Institute and UNSW and will bring paediatric care together with research, education and training spaces under one roof.  

The interiors were designed with family-friendly spaces in mind, with comfortable sleeping options for parents and carers, as well as play and recreational areas, making use of natural light to promote healing. 

When completed, the services will include: 

  • a new children's emergency department  
  • medical short stay unit 
  • neurosciences centre 
  • virtual care centre and hospital command centre 
  • inpatient units for medical, surgical, sleep and oncology specialties, including bone marrow transplant 
  • Minderoo Children's Comprehensive Cancer Centre 
  • a day oncology centre 
  • laboratories to support cancer research, education and training 
  • paediatric pharmacy 
  • improved parent amenities, including overnight bereavement rooms 
  • education and training spaces. 

John Holland is the main construction partner for the project.  

The project is the next stage of the Randwick Campus Redevelopment and follows the recent completion of major construction of the Prince of Wales Hospital Acute Services Building, which is set to open to the public from early 2023. 

This significant investment in paediatric care is made possible by funding allocations from the NSW ($478 million) and Commonwealth Governments ($100 million), Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation ($25 million) and the Children’s Cancer Institute ($25 million). UNSW is providing a $30 million in-kind contribution for a component of the Minderoo Children’s Comprehensive Cancer Centre within the future adjacent UNSW Health Translation Hub.  

In April 2022, Minderoo Foundation was announced as naming rights partner to the Children’s Comprehensive Cancer Centre, announcing a $15 million donation as part of the $50 million in planned philanthropic contributions to the project.
