New Women’s and Children’s Hospital Taskforce

New Women's and Children's Hospital Taskforce

WCH Taskforce

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).

Jim Birch, a former Chief Executive Officer of the Women's and Children's Hospital and the SA Health Department has been appointed to lead the Taskforce, which will guide the planning for a new Women's and Children's Hospital to be co-located with the RAH.

The Taskforce will develop a fully costed plan to build a new Women's and Children's Hospital (WCH) to be co-located with the new Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH), with the aim to complete the project by 2024.

It 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.

The Women's and Children's Health Network Chief Executive Officer Lindsey Gough and the new Women's and Children's Hospital Taskforce Chair Jim Birch provide a recap of what the Taskforce has been set up to do between now and the end of the year.
