The Sydney Children’s Hospital Stage 1 and Minderoo Children’s Comprehensive Cancer Centre project in Australia worth $658m ($431.8m) has marked a significant construction milestone as the new 12-storey facility reached its highest point.

This achievement was celebrated with a ‘topping out’ ceremony attended by Federal Minister for Health Mark Butler, Federal Member for Kingsford Smith Matt Thistlethwaite, NSW Minister for Health Ryan Park and Member for Coogee Dr Marjorie O’Neill.

The Sydney Children’s Hospital Stage 1 and Minderoo Children’s Comprehensive Cancer Centre are planned to be delivered as a single project in one facility, transforming paediatric health care locally, nationally, and globally.

The facility is on track to be completed by late 2025 and is part of a $1.5bn investment in the Randwick Health and Innovation Precinct.

It will feature a range of enhanced facilities, including a children’s intensive care unit, a larger emergency department, a medical short-stay unit, and a neurosciences centre.

Additionally, it will house KidsHQ, a virtual care and hospital command centre, inpatient units, a day oncology centre, and a dedicated bone marrow transplant unit.

The project also includes co-located laboratories to support the Minderoo Children’s Comprehensive Cancer Centre’s focus on research, education, and training.

The centre will offer advanced laboratory spaces and provide integrated cancer treatment, education, and research, with the goal of transforming paediatric cancer care.

This expansion is a collaborative effort between the NSW and federal governments, the Children’s Cancer Institute, the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network, the Kids Cancer Centre, and UNSW Sydney.

It represents Australia’s first Children’s Comprehensive Cancer Centre within the new hospital and university buildings on site.

Significant philanthropic support has come from the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation, Minderoo Foundation, and Children’s Cancer Institute.

Health Infrastructure is overseeing the project’s delivery, with John Holland serving as the principal contractor.
