A new, world-class Women's and Children's Hospital
The State Government is proposing a new Womenâ€™s and Childrenâ€™s Hospital to be collocated with the new Royal Adelaide Hospital within the South Australian Health and Biomedical Precinct on North Terrace in 2023. This is a broad proposal and the State Government is seeking feedback from the community, clinicians and interested parties before details about budget, timeframes and services would be determined during planning over the next few years. Have your say before 24 November 2013 by completing the online survey at www.newWCH.sa.gov.au
The Women's and Children's Hospital is a smoke-free health site.
The hospital complies with the SA Health Smoke-free policy, which bans smoking in all South Australian public health facilities.

Arts in health
Art is an important part of the landscape at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
Through the Arts in Health program, supported by the Women's and Children's Hospital Foundation, there are regular art displays at the hospital, for the enjoyment and benefit of our patients, families and community.
The Arts in Health program aims to integrate arts into the Women's and Children's Hospital to improve people’s health and wellbeing.
One of the public artworks currently on display at the Women's and Children's Hospital is a 'whimsical house', created by artist James Parker.
