A $50 million upgrade of the Women's and Children's Hospital is underway so that we can continue to provide the highest quality of care while planning continues for a new hospital.
The upgrades will address high priority clinical and infrastructure requirements in four key areas, enabling us to continue to deliver high quality and safe services to our patients and their families.
These exciting upgrades include:
Child and Adolescent Mental Health ward relocation and redevelopment to create an outdoor space and a high dependency area.
Neonatal Nursery redevelopment to expand the treatment space providing better access for families and staff.
Paediatric Emergency Department redevelopment, with improved triage area, dedicated mental health assessment spaces and three extra treatment areas.
Operating theatres refurbishment in their current locations to create a friendly atmosphere for our families.
The Operating Theatres redevelopment has commenced with the upgrade of the Procedure Room. Following the Procedure Room upgrade each theatre will be refurbished one theatre at a time.
The Paediatric Emergency Department redevelopment will commence in November 2019, with works to begin in Boylan Ward and the Neonatal Nurseries in early 2020.
We are aware that there may be an increase in noise and activity resulting from these exciting upgrades but we are working hard to minimise disruptions for our patients, their families, visitors and our staff.
