The Women's and Children's Hospital is located on the traditional lands for the Kaurna people, and we respect their spiritual relationship with their Country. We also acknowledge that the Kaurna people are the custodians of the Adelaide region, and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still as important to the living Kaurna people today.

nWCH Parking and Treatment Spaces revealed

nWCH News
Posted 19 Nov 2020

Preliminary Planning reveals that there will be 1,200 car parks and 441 treatment spaces for the nWCH.

Disability and pram parks will be under cover, in close proximity to the new hospital, and will be more accessible and user-friendly than the current arrangement at our existing site.

This will greatly benefit children and young people with disabilities and their family carers, many of whom are frequent users of the hospital.

Based on SA Health state-wide planning and preliminary operational planning, it has been determined that 441 treatment spaces is what will be required to meet future demand for the new hospital.

The preliminary planning will be used by the design team to progress work on a master plan and to inform early concept design of what will be a state-of-the-art hospital for South Australian families.

Consultation with clinicians and other staff on the planning and design of the new hospital is continuing, albeit there is a brief pause to address the Covid-19 response.

Discussions are also continuing with the Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH) in the pursuit of opportunities for shared services and functional space, such as security, pathology, kitchen and sterilisation services.
