Make-over work on Westmead Hospital’s University Clinics has been completed – much to the delight of staff, patients and visitors.

The hospital’s popular clinics have undergone an extensive revamp, courtesy of Western Sydney Local Health District’s capital works team, aimed at creating a comfortable, fresh waiting area for patients, carers and families.

The clinics are now home to new furniture and a new reception desk in the waiting area, along with new flooring, ceiling, painting and signage.

Westmead Hospital general manager Brett Thompson said the improvements had already been a hit with the clinics’ staff and patients.

“We’ve had great feedback from the staff in the clinics, along with patients and visitors, who are so happy to see this space getting a much-needed make-over,” he said.

“As refurbishment work progresses across the hospital as part of the Westmead Redevelopment project, it’s important to us that busy spaces like the University Clinics look and feel consistent with other refurbished spaces across the facility.

“I’d like to thank the staff in the clinics for their patience during the work – it’s great to see the space looking much brighter and welcoming.”

The University Clinics work is one of several capital works projects currently taking places across the hospital.

Other projects include refurbishment of the main entrance, with work on the atrium set to start next week, and an extensive upgrade of the lifts across the hospital to allow staff, patients and visitors to travel more quickly and safely between floors.
