In March 2015, the NSW Minister for Health announced $500 million for the Stage 1 Redevelopment of the Prince of Wales Hospital and associated services. Subsequent to the development of the GRUM and RASCHM, BVN continued working with TERROIR to deliver the Integrated Acute Services Building (ASB) which is the first stage planned for the campus renewal and the catalyst project for expanding the world-class heath, research and education facilities at the Randwick precinct.
The Integrated ASB is the first major upgrade to the Prince of Wales Hospital in 25 years, delivering state-of-the-art infrastructure that will support new and innovative approaches to acute healthcare and provide staff with purpose-designed and built facilities that support contemporary clinical practice and enhanced patient experience. Key design approaches related to the patient experience included:
– Fostering calm through enhanced connectivity and intuitive wayfinding that helps patients reach their destination and access the required health services
– Promoting wellbeing by providing safe, green and open public spaces that connect with internal areas.
In partnership with UNSW there are health-related academic and translational research spaces will be collocated with clinical services. These include laboratories and spaces to support collaboration and the testing and trialling of new models of care and innovative treatments.
