HDR | Rice Daubney and MSJ Selected for Planning Phase of Sydney's Westmead Hospital Redevelopment Project
(June 20, 2014) - HDR | Rice Daubney, in a joint venture with MSJ, has been engaged by Health Infrastructure of New South Wales to provide feasibility studies and planning services for the Westmead Hospital Redevelopment Project – a major redevelopment of the Westmead Hospital campus to serve the growing communities of western Sydney, now and into the future.
Westmead Hospital is located within the Western Sydney Local Health District—one of the most populous in NSW and among the fastest growing regions in the state and Australia. The hospital forms part of one of the largest health, education and training, and medical research precincts in the country.
The current Westmead Hospital is a 900-bed tertiary facility. The Redevelopment Project seeks to co-locate all complex and critical care services into comprehensive care centers to improve the treatment of critically ill emergency, trauma and surgical patients. It will also expand outpatient and ambulatory care areas, and co-locate research functions currently spread across the campus.
This project win continues the successful relationship between HDR | Rice Daubney and MSJ, having previously joined forces on major health projects in the past, including the Reference Design for the Northern Beaches Hospital PPP Bid and the Royal North Shore Hospital PPP Bid.
