Information for the community – Updated 23 May 2022
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.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this website may contain images, voices and names of people who have passed away.

How to design and build the new WCH

Building a new Women's and Children's Hospital is a challenging and exciting process, and that's why we are working closely with our clinicians, staff and consumers during the planning, design and delivery phases of the project to ensure we build a new hospital that is tailored to our community’s unique needs.

The project will undergo three distinct phases; planning, design and delivery. This comprehensive process ensures our new hospital will meet the future health needs of our community and staff.

Here's a step-by-step guide for how we're going to plan, design and deliver our new hospital.


Our clinicians, staff, consumers and the broader South Australian community will play a significant role in shaping our new hospital.

Their input is key to what we do, how we do it and how we plan and design our new hospital.

We look forward to providing you with further updates about our planning work as we continue on this exciting journey together.
