We're investing an additional $30 million in the current Women's and Children's Hospital to ensure it continues to deliver high quality care, while the new $1.95 billion hospital is built.

The investment includes an upgrade of the adolescent ward and an expansion of the Paediatric Emergency Department by 10 treatment spaces.

This is in addition to upgrades to the mental health ward, theatre suites, ED and neonatal nurseries, bringing the total sustainment works package to more than $80 million.

South Australian children will continue to receive high quality care in an up-to-date facility while work continues for the new Women’s and Children’s Hospital.

The nWCH will feature more treatment spaces, more beds, a bigger Emergency Department, more neonatal cots, more theatres, more recovery bays, more outpatient spaces and more car parks than the existing hospital.

Construction works on the nWCH are expected to begin in the second half of this year.
