Some of NSW’s most prominent government leaders have toured the Westmead Health Precinct to get a glimpse of the future in Western Sydney.
The visit to Westmead included the Secretary of NSW Health Elizabeth Koff, along with representatives from the Department of Premier and Cabinet, NSW Health, NSW Police and other government agencies.
The meeting was part of a fortnightly Secretaries Board gathering, with Westmead selected as the location by the Department of Premier and Cabinet Chair and Secretary Tim Reardon.
Guests visited the Westmead Redevelopment prototype rooms, which are identical replicas of some of the spaces inside Westmead Hospital’s Central Acute Services Building (CASB).
The CASB is part of the $1 billion Westmead Redevelopment and will open in October 2020.
The visitors also toured areas of the Westmead Health Precinct, which includes four major hospitals and three world-leading research institutes.
Western Sydney Local Health District chief executive Graeme Loy joined the Westmead Hospital Redevelopment senior project director to host the visit.
“The Westmead Health Precinct will continue to receive national and global attention as we continue to grow and transform the way healthcare is delivered,” Graeme said.
“Just last week we had business leaders from China visit – there is a lot of interest in the world-class work being carried out in Westmead.”
