About the new building
A new main entry directs patients into the new complex, with a cancer centre entry located at the opposite end of the building. The two entries stream patients and visitors quickly and easily to their destination.

At entry level, called level 3, the building includes the new cancer centre, two central courtyards, pharmacy and a new antenatal clinic.

The entry level connects via the hospital street to the existing Emergency Department, outpatient clinics, therapies, medical imaging and other services.

On the upper levels, the cancer centre clinics and infusion services occupy most of level 4.

On level 5, wards for stroke, rehabilitation and aged care are located adjacent to the dedicated therapy area.

Our new cardiac care unit occupies the spacious level 6. Terraces on this level provide welcome outdoor space for patients who may spend longer times in hospital.

A secure ward for patients affected by dementia and other cognitive diseases of ageing is also located on level 5.

Two respiratory wards and a dedicated respiratory centre are located on the top floor, along with the cancer inpatient unit.

The wards have an open design to ensure staff can ‘see and be seen’.

New carer zones

Pleasant single and two-bed rooms, all with en-suites, provide a new level of comfort for patients. Innovative carer zones in some patient rooms allow adult carers to stay overnight with adult patients. Ask a staff member for more informaiton about staying overnight with us or read the carer fact sheet.

For staff, purpose-built facilities have been designed to support current best-practice models of care, providing workplaces specially designed for multidisciplinary teams including doctors, nurses, allied health professionals and support staff.
 

Carer zones

Most single rooms in our new building have visitor lounges which convert to beds so carers can stay overnight with an adult patient. Ask your nursing staff for more information or read the fact sheet.
