Ros Blewitt, a long serving staff member of Ryde Hospital and the Clinical Nurse Consultant for Critical Care, spoke with Health Infrastructure about her involvement in the planning and design of Ryde Hospital Redevelopment and what excites her most about the redevelopment.
Project user groups have brought together staff members like Ros to contribute to the design of the redevelopment through active collaboration with architects, staff, and the project team. There have been over 245 project user groups and working group meetings held, with more than 120 staff members from around 25 health units and departments involved.
The redevelopment team has been progressing the early works to prepare the hospital for the main works construction. The main works construction contract is expected to be awarded in late 2023.
The redevelopment will transform the delivery of healthcare for the Ryde local community, ensuring people can get the care they need close to home.
