Construction and Upgrades

Big things are happening here

Paediatric Emergency Department Redevelopment

Families coming to our Paediatric Emergency Department (PED) will have their visit made a little easier with the opening of our upgraded 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.

Thank you for being patient with us while we continue with the next stage of building works. These works will deliver an isolation room, dedicated mental health assessment spaces, multi-purpose consultation spaces, a patient bathroom, support spaces, additional multi-purpose consultation spaces and new staff work areas.

The full redevelopment will be completed by mid-2020.
