“We believed clinical care is best delivered with teaching, training and research. That was the mantra of our founding professors of medicine and surgery, the late Professor Peter Castaldi AO and Professor Miles Little.” - Westmead Hospital’s clinical immunology director and a Westmead ‘original’ Professor Graeme Stewart
Built on a former race track and populated by young staff bursting with enthusiasm and energy, Westmead Hospital officially opened its doors on 10 November, 1978 to patients.
On Saturday, 10 November, 2018 we celebrated 40 years of success and achievements with the hospital’s first-ever baby born and some of the longest serving staff. The celebrations coincided with the hospital’s open day and a visit from the NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard.
Everyone enjoyed the historical video and memorabilia including nursing uniforms and medical equipment.
