The Prince of Wales Hospital in Randwick, Australia, has officially opened its new Acute Services Building in the first key overhaul of the hospital in 25 years. 

This A$865.3m ($596m) facility includes a community assessment unit and a community management centre, aimed at reducing pressure on the emergency department and providing virtual care services.

The 13-storey building features new treatment spaces, an expanded emergency department, and an intensive care unit.

Also included is a central sterilising services department and a psychiatric emergency care centre.

The facility aims to provide modern, purpose-built spaces for patients and staff and enhance the delivery of healthcare services to the community.

This project is part of the wider Randwick Campus Redevelopment, with a total cost of over A$1.5bn.

Further investment by UNSW Sydney will also facilitate a 5,000m² extension.

This will support health-linked academic and translational research spaces that will be co-located with clinical services and are expected to launch next year.

In addition, the New South Wales (NSW) Labor Government has outlined additional measures to improve the state’s healthcare system, including safe staffing levels, the recruitment of paramedics, opening urgent care clinics, and addressing surgical wait times.

NSW Minister for Health Ryan Park said: “I am really pleased the eastern suburbs community now has access to this world-class acute services building, which will provide care for this growing community for many years to come.

“It is great to see first-hand how this new facility will support new and innovative approaches to healthcare, now and well into the future.

“This state-of-the-art facility was designed with input from our incredibly valuable healthcare staff and the patients that they care for, so the final result reflects the needs of this growing community.”
