Build What Matters - PED

Paediatric Emergency Department Redevelopment

Stage 3 of our Paediatric Emergency Department (PED) Redevelopment is underway. These works will upgrade our Extended Emergency Care Unit, featuring an isolation room, dedicated mental health assessment spaces, a patient bathroom, support spaces, additional multi-purpose consultation spaces and new staff work areas. We thank you for your patience as these important works continue.

The first stage of the PED Redevelopment involved upgrading the PED triage and waiting areas. The new space includes refurbished clinical support areas, larger waiting areas, bright wall graphics and a fun interactive area to entertain and distract children visiting the PED.

We have worked closely with our staff, consumers and stakeholders to ensure these works meet the needs of our patients and we have no doubt this upgraded space will allow our staff to continue to provide the highest standard of emergency care to children from across the state.

The redevelopment is scheduled for completion in mid-2021.
