Women's and Children's Hospital Upgrade Project

The South Australian Government is investing $50 million 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.

These exciting upgrades include:

  • Child and Adolescent Mental Health Ward relocation and redevelopment to create an outdoor space and a High Dependency area.
  • Neonatal Nursery redevelopment to expand the treatment space providing better access for families and staff.
  • Paediatric Emergency Department redevelopment, with improved triage area, dedicated mental health assessment spaces and three extra treatment areas.
  • Operating Theatres refurbishment in their current locations.
  • Engineering and ICT infrastructure upgrades.
