Westmead Hospital redevelopment design concept
The redevelopment will also create more than 1000 construction jobs each year the project runs.
NSW Premier Mike Baird said the redevelopment will deliver world-class health services to Western Sydney’s growing population and help create future job opportunities.
“We want to ensure we use all the skills of Western Sydney local industries so that funding for the project is invested back into the community and the local economy,” Mr Baird said.
More than 12,000 people work and visit Westmead daily and consultation with local staff, clinicians and the community has been a key part of the design process.
