Active traveller CASB site tours

4/11/20

 

The Change and Transition team invites WSLHD staff interested in seeing the Central Acute Services Building’s new facilities for cyclists, skateboarders, walkers and other active travellers to attend a site walk of the space prior to the building opening in early 2021.

The CASB\'s new end-of-trip facilities offer change rooms, lockers, showers and storage.

To register your spot on the 30-minute walk, email the Redevelopment Team on SCHN-Plan@health.nsw.gov.au

Site walks continue this Friday 6 November and next week on:
Monday, Wednesday and Friday (9, 11, 13 November) at 7am, 12.30pm and 3.30pm.

Sign in at the CASB Loading Dock (at the rear of the CASB, see the loading dock signs near where Redbank Road meets Dragonfly Drive).

Ensure you’re wearing comfortable shoes and carrying your staff ID. From there, you will be guided to the new facilities. Please note these site walks start on time and run for about 30 minutes.

ED simulations in CASB

4/11/20

 

An integral part of preparation for the opening of the Central Acute Services Building (CASB) early 2021 is staff training to ensure we’re ready for our new surroundings.

Multi-disciplinary simulations over the past few weeks involving trauma, imaging, emergency medicine and anaesthesia have helped test workflows, equipment and the new hospital’s spaces.

In the most recent scenario, a patient was flown in, transported by the critical lift from the 14th-level helipad to the Emergency Department, before being resuscitated and taken to theatre.

These important simulations help provide the best-quality care for patients in our new facility.

Staff training, preparations for the CASB

4/11/20

 

The start of November signals another step closer to the opening of the 14-level Central Acute Services Building (CASB).

 

The state-of-the-art hospital, which includes two emergency departments and more than 300 patient rooms, is set to open in the heart of Westmead Health Precinct early 2021.

 

An integral part of our preparation is staff training to ensure we’re ready for our new surroundings. Over the past few weeks, that’s exactly what our teams have started doing.

 

Multi-disciplinary simulations involving trauma, imaging, emergency medicine and anaesthesia have helped test workflows, equipment and the new hospital’s spaces.

 

In the most recent scenario, a patient was flown in, transported by the critical lift from the 14th-level helipad to the Emergency Department, before being resuscitated and taken to theatre.

 

These important simulations help us provide the best-quality care for patients in our new facility.


The CASB is open for all staff to visit this month. Eighty-four individual CASB site sessions over four days (November 11-12, 18-19) have been organised. There are still some spots available in various sessions so if you haven’t registered, log in to the website.

Tours cover:

Level 1 (Adults’ Emergency Department)

Level 3 (Peri-op suites, Cath labs)

Level 5 (Day Surgery and Recovery)

Level 12 (Cardiology)

 

Another exciting milestone for the CASB is the unveiling of The Tree Full of Life near the front entrance, next to the Innovation Centre.

 

The 14-metre tall artwork has been hidden by scaffolding during its installation. But now Maria Fernanda Cardoso’s stunning work, part of the Westmead Redevelopment Arts and Culture Strategy, is ready to enjoy.

 

This activity of events in and around the CASB will continue to gain momentum as we ensure the opening of the state’s new flagship for health, research and innovation provides staff and patients with the very best of support and care.
