Major Capital Projects
Women's and Children's Hospital Upgrade Project
The South Australian Government has confirmed their $50 million funding commitment to deliver essential clinical, infrastructure and engineering upgrades at the Women's and Children's Hospital while our new hospital is being planned, designed and built.
The upgrades will address high priority clinical and infrastructure requirements in four key areas, enabling us to continue to deliver high quality and safe services to our consumers and their families.
The principles of Consumer and Community Engagement will underpin our work in Capital works.
The early works have commenced in preparation for the redevelopment of four key clinical areas. The plans of the redevelopment works for these four key areas are now out for consultation until Friday, 10 May 2019. If you would like to provide feedback or have questions about the plans and the sustainment works, please contact the project team at health.WCHNCapitalProjects@sa.gov.au.
