World-class health care for women, children and babies

A new Adelaide Women's Hospital

$592 million is being invested into the health of South Australian women, children and babies.

$528 million will be invested to build a new, world-class Adelaide Women’s Hospital, providing Australia’s highest standard of maternity and newborn services.

The 2017/18 State Budget also included an additional $24 million over two years to an overall $64.4 million investment to upgrade the existing Women’s and Children’s Hospital site.

A plan for the relocation of the new Adelaide Children’s Hospital will be announced by the end of 2019.

Adelaide Women’s Hospital

A new $528 million state of the art Adelaide Women’s Hospital will be built, co-located with the new Royal Adelaide Hospital within the new South Australian Health and Biomedical Precinct.

The new Adelaide Women’s Hospital will continue to provide tertiary level maternity, neonatal and gynecological services that are currently offered at the existing Women’s and Children’s Hospital site in North Adelaide.

It will support complex maternity services with access to adult intensive care and sub-specialty services. It will also have access to the new Royal Adelaide Hospital’s helipad to enable rapid access to clinical care.

Perinatal infant mental health services currently delivered at Helen Mayo House will be relocated and expanded from the current Glenside site.

The new Adelaide Women’s Hospital will be part of a single-service, multi-site Women’s and Children’s Health Network, which will continue to deliver the State’s highest level of care to babies, children and women. It will exemplify outstanding clinical service, education and research.

Construction is expected to be completed by 2024.

$64.4 million investment into the existing Women’s and Children’s Hospital site

The $64.4 million investment into the existing site will include:

  • A new Medical Day Unit, providing high quality care to children who need renal dialysis and day medical treatment spaces for children.
  • Redeveloped clinical areas.
  • Upgraded engineering infrastructure.

The first works will involve the development of a new Medical Day Unit incorporating renal dialysis and day medical treatment spaces for children. It will provide 18 treatment bays as well as improved spaces for consulting rooms, staff facilities, medication, treatment and waiting areas.

The South Australian Government will announce its plan for the development of a new Adelaide Children’s Hospital, located within the South Australian Health and Biomedical Precinct, by the end of 2019. It is expected the children’s services will remain at the current site for at least 10 years until relocation to a site in the South Australian Health and Biomedical Precinct is completed.
