The new Acute Services Building will engage, enliven and inspire our community through celebrating and sharing our stories, our history and our environment.

Arts and Culture Strategy

The Randwick Campus Redevelopment’s Acute Services Building Arts and Culture Strategy was developed in consultation with staff, students, patients, carers, families, visitors and community members and guided by the NSW Health and The Arts Framework. The Arts and Culture Strategy outlined how the arts will be embedded in the new building. The Acute Services Building boasts a range of artworks and installations aimed at creating a welcoming space for all patients, staff and visitors, and improving health outcomes as a result.
