Westmead Hospital - Infection Control

COVID 19 Risk Management
CETEC helped Westmead Hospital meet stricter standards for infection control by providing airtightness testing and reports on leakage points. Explore the full case study below.

As the principal referral hospital in western Sydney, Westmead Hospital delivers exceptional
specialised and complex services. Currently undergoing a $1.1 billion redevelopment
program, Westmead will become one of Australia’s most significant health, education,
research and training precincts.

CETEC provided multidisciplinary services to test and advise on infection control and
airtightness to Australian Standard AS2243.3 200Pa. This first-rate testing has ensured
Westmead’s new NIDU pods meet the increasingly stringent standards required for high-infection rooms.
