Modbury Hospital Redevelopment Latest Updates
Next Milestone Complete
Great things are continuing to happen in the North with the next milestone in the $98million redevelopment of Modbury Hospital now complete.
The reinstatement of the High Dependency Unit at Modbury Hospital officially opened on 31 March and will provide many benefits to the local community including;
- Enabling patients who require a higher level of monitoring and management of their clinical condition to be cared for at Modbury Hospital
- Ease pressure on the Emergency Department and increase the complexity of patients admitted to Modbury Hospital
- Support the increase of low to medium complex surgeries in the new surgical suite, which will enable more patients to be treated closer to home
- Increase the ability to manage unwell patients at Modbury Hospital both medically and post-surgery
We know that providing health care to patient’s in their local area leads to better health outcomes for our patients and alleviates stress and inconvenience and travel time for their families.
The next milestone in the redevelopment project will be the opening of the new and expanded Surgical Suite and Outpatients Department in April.
Patients and visitors to the Modbury Hospital will also notice our new front entrance, and refurbished façade, which brings the Hospital up to modern standards. A particular highlight of the ground floor entrance is the new cafe, where visitors and patients alike can enjoy a range of light snacks in a relaxed and welcoming setting.
Modbury Hospital Redevelopment – What’s next
First major milestone complete
A modern, 8-bed specialised Extended Emergency Care Unit, built adjacent to the Emergency Department is the first major milestone completed as part of the Modbury Hospital Redevelopment. Patients who are assessed in the Emergency Department can be moved to the Extended Emergency Care Unit for further observation and treatment for up to 24 hours. The hospital is then able to free up some emergency beds, improving the movement of new patients into the Emergency Department.
