New $600m Women's and Children's Hospital to be built at new Royal Adelaide Hospital site in Adelaide


A NEW Women's and Children's Hospital costing in excess of $600 million will be built at the new Royal Adelaide Hospital site to open in 2023, Premier Jay Weatherill has announced.

Mr Weatherill today said the move would give women, children and babies access to the most advanced acute hospital care.

He said it was part of the State Government's long-term vision to build the Southern Hemisphere's largest and most advanced health and medical research precinct.

"The current hospital building is ageing and has limited options for expansion," Mr Weatherill said.

"By moving it to the new Royal Adelaide Hospital site, we will have a world-class adult, women's and children's hospital facility with specialised care and improved services."

TELL US: What do you think of the plan? Post your comments below

The new Women's and Children's Hospital would open in 2023 in an area already set aside within the new SA Health and Biomedical Precinct in the West End.

The hospital would have its own entrance separate from the new RAH, and paediatric services would remain separate from adult services.

Health Minister Jack Snelling said the new Women's and Children's Hospital would keep its name but improve access to specialists and be a more efficient use of resources.

"The current Women's and Children's Hospital does not have the capacity to provide general hospital services to women if they are needed during childbirth," he said.

"This means that a woman may have to be transferred to the Royal Adelaide Hospital for treatment, while her newborn baby remains at the Women's and Children's Hospital.

"Having both hospitals at the same location will mean that new mothers can remain on the same site as their newborn baby, irrespective of the medical care they require."

Mr Snelling said the government would now work with clinicians to develop the design and implementation of the new facility.

The process for this initial feedback will be open until Sunday, November 24, 2013.

Would like to see an overhead of where they are going to place it...obviously on the west of the RAH...if this goes ahead, damn that place is going to be huge and world class.

What was the news on the medical school, is that going ahead too?
*Looks at Dyson Airblade Factory* "I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit, it's the only way to be sure"

Out of interest, is the "old" WCH in parklands, or is that part of North Adelaide not considered parklands? (it gets a bit muddled around there! )Imagine the redevelopement potential of the former site with that view of the cathedral and gardens if it is able to be redeveloped.

A new, world-class Women's and Children's Hospital
------------------------------------------------------------
Today the Premier announced a proposal to collocate a new Women’s and Children’s Hospital with the new Royal Adelaide Hospital.

While planning the new Royal Adelaide Hospital, the State Government received a lot of feedback about the importance of collocating the Women’s and
Children’s Hospital with the new Royal Adelaide Hospital. We are responding to this feedback and now invite you to have a say on this proposal.

The proposal is for a new Women’s and Children’s Hospital to be collocated with the new Royal Adelaide Hospital within the South Australian Health and
Biomedical Precinct on North Terrace in 2023. This would create a world-class, comprehensive adult, women’s and children’s hospital facility, giving South
Australians access to the most advanced hospital care and health and medical research.

This is a long term vision for the future of the South Australian health system.

If collocated in 2023, as proposed, the Women’s and Children’s Hospital would maintain its own entrance, name and culture, and paediatric services would
be separated from adult services in keeping with international best-practice.

A new Women’s and Children’s Hospital would:
* Consider the future health needs of South Australians with a new, state of the art hospital.
* Support complex obstetric and paediatric services with access to adult emergency specialist support and intensive care should they be needed. This
ensures women won’t be separated from their newborn babies should they need adult specialist care.
* Provide a smooth transition to adult services for adolescents with serious illnesses requiring ongoing care.
* Offer efficient use of public resources through sharing of facilities and medical equipment, where appropriate.
* Continue to give South Australians access to world-class clinicians who are attracted to live and work here thanks to the teaching and education
opportunities that come with the southern hemisphere’s largest health and biomedical precinct.

Have your say

This is a broad proposal and we are seeking feedback from the community, clinicians and interested parties. Details about budget, timeframes and
services would be determined in consultation with the community and clinicians.

You are invited to provide feedback on this proposal until Sunday, 24 November 2013. Simply fill in the feedback form and return to the drop off boxes in the
main foyer of the Women’s and Children’s Hospital or the Royal Adelaide Hospital. Alternatively, post your feedback to: WCH Proposal, PO Box 287 Rundle
Mall, Adelaide SA 5000.

You can also provide feedback by:

• Online survey at http://www.newWCH.sa.gov.au

• Email to newWCH@health.sa.gov.au

• Attending a consultation forum with information about events at http://www.newWCH.sa.gov.au

It's exciting in terms of health Pushbutton. Obviously you don't go to hospital for a good time. Even you must surely acknowledge that as a health outcome for this state it is very exciting and would be a truly world class establishment if completed.

Some pretty big potential for the current hospital site. Smack bang between two existing dining/retail precincts that could do with a well needed boast aswell as walking distance to Adelaide Oval and so on.

Plus imagine the city views!

They just need to move Memorial hospital now. Can't see much excitment potential around there until then.
