This morning The NSW Government announced children needing specialist care at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead will benefit from an extra $619 million investment to upgrade the Hospital.

This significant funding will deliver both new and expanded health services for sick children, including intensive care, cancer services and mental health care services.

The announcement is in addition to the $95 million for Stage 1 of the redevelopment currently underway.

Nicola Stokes, CEO of Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation was delighted to attend the announcement and reveal the Foundation’s pledge to raise $35 million towards this important redevelopment: “This is a huge win for children’s health and means a commitment to state-of-the-art facilities at the Westmead campus, which is what all kids deserve.”

This exciting news follows the Government’s commitment to transform Hospitals across NSW, including last week’s announcement to fund $608 million to redevelop Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick and establish a new Comprehensive Children’s Cancer Centre.
