Noarlunga Hospital $74million upgrade
16 January 2023
The State Government has announced 48 new beds for Noarlunga Hospital, providing southern suburbs’ residents with better access to vital healthcare, and in turn improving patient flow and reducing pressure on the system.
A new purpose-built $36 million Mental Health Rehabilitation Service will deliver 24 specialist mental health beds for those with high and complex needs.
In addition, a new $38 million 24-bed Inpatient Medical Unit will also be built.
SA Health and the Department for Infrastructure and Transport have engaged local architecture studios Wilshire Swain Architects and GHDWoodhead to work with clinical teams and consumers to design the hospital upgrade.
Concept planning and clinical consultation will commence in the coming weeks, with construction expected to start on the new units later this year following a competitive tender process.
In addition, construction is also due to start on an expanded renal dialysis unit at Noarlunga Hospital later this month.
A $2.8 million 12-chair dialysis unit will be built in a newly refurbished area of the hospital opposite the main entrance, delivering an extra three chairs than the current unit. The new unit has also been designed by Wiltshire Swain Architects.
