Major Capital Projects
The South Australian Government has established a high-level Taskforce to drive the co-location of a new Women's and Children's Hospital (WCH) with the Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH).
The Taskforce will develop a fully costed plan to build a new WCH and will identify the capital cost of the project, service specification (including bed numbers), the overall size of the new facility and the state-wide models of care needed to support the hospital's day-to-day operation. It is expected that the Taskforce will complete these activities by the end of 2018.

While this work is being undertaken by the Taskforce, the South Australian Government has committed to sustaining the current Women's and Children's Hospital site, beginning with the redevelopment of the hospital's Medical Day Unit (MDU) and Renal Dialysis Unit (RDU) for chronically ill children.
The improved $4m facility is a significant infrastructure investment that will provide real benefits to families and staff at the hospital now, while the new WCH Taskforce looks to how services will be delivered at our new hospital in the future.
In the meantime, chronically ill children will benefit from having access to a refreshed facility designed especially for their needs.
The redeveloped unit has capacity for up to 18 treatment spaces that will see children with life-long or chronic conditions and also provide services including dialysis, allergy tests and intravenous infusions.

The Principles of Consumer and Community Engagement will underpin our work in Capital works.
