New images have been unveiled showcasing the welcoming and home-like interiors of the future Sydney Children’s Hospital Stage 1 and Minderoo Children’s Comprehensive Cancer Centre (SCH1/MCCCC), which is currently under construction on the Randwick Campus Redevelopment site.

Around 2,000 staff, patient families and community members were consulted in the development of the designs, sharing their lived experience of the hospital system with project architects Billard Leece Partnership to help shape the building's interior spaces and exterior facade. 

The interiors were designed with family-friendly spaces in mind, with comfortable sleeping options for parents and carers, as well as play and recreational areas, making use of natural light to promote healing. 

The purpose-built facility is being delivered by Health Infrastructure in partnership with the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network, Children’s Cancer Institute and UNSW and will bring paediatric care together with research, education and training spaces under one roof.  

When completed, the building will include: 

  • a new children's emergency department  
  • medical short stay unit 
  • neurosciences centre 
  • virtual care centre and hospital command centre 
  • inpatient units for medical, surgical, sleep and oncology specialties, including bone marrow transplant 
  • Minderoo Children's Comprehensive Cancer Centre 
  • a day oncology centre 
  • laboratories to support cancer research, education and training 
  • paediatric pharmacy 
  • improved parent amenities, including overnight bereavement rooms 
  • education and training spaces. 

John Holland is the main construction partner for the project, which is the next stage of the Randwick Campus Redevelopment and follows the recent completion of major construction of the Prince of Wales Hospital Acute Services Building, which is set to open to the public from early 2023.
