An important milestone of the $250 million Griffith Base Hospital Redevelopment
has been reached, with the new Ambulatory Care Hub opening its doors to the public this week.
The Ambulatory Care Hub will provide additional oncology services, expanded outpatient specialist clinical spaces, rehabilitation gymnasium, allied health and Hospital in the Home when completed by 2024.
Health Infrastructure Chief Executive Rebecca Wark said it was exciting to have reached this project milestone.
“The new building provides the community better access to outpatient services and provides staff with more opportunities to collaborate under the one roof,” she said.
Most specialist clinics have transferred to the Ambulatory Care Hub, located off Noorebar Avenue, as the buildings vacated by those clinics sit within the future redevelopment zone.
The remainder of the Griffith Base Hospital Redevelopment is progressing in two streams: the continuation of enabling works; and the progression of the design for the new clinical services building.
Other works completed this month as part of the Griffith Base Hospital Redevelopment include:
- an expansion to the Medical Services Building to incorporate additional support areas and storage in the Critical Care Unit and Perioperative areas
- expansions to improve functionality of the Medical and Surgical floors in the Inpatient Unit to the south of the building, including an inpatient rehabilitation gymnasium.
The obstetrics, gynaecology, pregnancy care, cardiology and paediatric clinics will continue services in the same location in the main hospital building until the completion of the new Clinical Services Building.
Earlier this month the schematic design of the new hospital
was released for community feedback.
