Work begins on Westmead Private Hospital expansion

May 07, 2020

Western Sydney residents will soon have access to new and improved medical facilities with construction beginning on the next expansion of Westmead Private Hospital.

The works are stage three of a planned four-stage development, and once complete will provide two additional operating theatres, 13 consulting suites, 28 additional beds and the upgrade of two Cardiac Catheter Laboratories.

Westmead Private Hospital Chief Executive Officer, Mike Flatley said stage 3 aims to provide even better facilities for patients and doctors of Western Sydney

“Our development will further assist in making the Westmead Health Precinct a centre of excellence in health services, education and medical research, but most importantly we will be able to provide better facilities for our patients,” Mr Flatley said.

“With 13 new consulting suites we will be able to have more specialists on site, meaning patients won’t need to travel to multiple health precincts when planning their medical treatment.”

Westmead Private Hospital will also be able to broaden its scope of work and increase theatre time with an additional 28 beds available for patients.

“We know our patients want to be as comfortable as possible when recovering from surgery and our extra 28 beds will all be single, private rooms to give them with the best experience in patient care,” Mr Flatley said.

The launch of the stage three development comes approximately 12 months after stage two was completed - which included the $25 million upgrade of Westmead Private Hospital’s maternity wing and additional surgical beds.

“Our new parents are really enjoying the luxury hotel-style of our new maternity unit, we want the whole family - mother, partner and baby - to feel relaxed & comfortable in their surroundings whilst being supported by experienced doctors and midwives when they stay with us” Mr Flatley said.

“Once complete, the stage three development will offer that similar standard of luxurious patient facilities in other areas of medicine.”

Initial works to the carpark are already underway and work on the main hospital will begin next month.

Westmead Private Hospital’s stage three expansion is expected to be completed in 2022.
