A new Intensive Care Unit will open at Blacktonw Hospital in late 2019. 

It will provide spacious rooms for patients with state-of-the-art equipment, visitor amenities including a beverage bay, comfortable waiting areas and a terrace for patients, staff and families. 

There are also two overnight family rooms for relatives, designed as part of our carer zone program. 

The design was created collaboratively with staff and consumer representatives to ensure it provides optimum care and comfort. 

It will be located on level 5 of the new building.
