Revitalising health at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital
The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (TQEH) is at the heart of health care in Adelaide’s western suburbs and will continue to deliver world class health care services into the future, with strong links to teaching and learning, innovative research, and community.
After hours cardiology services have been reinstated at the hospital and a $4 million refurbishment of the cardiac catheterisation (cath) lab is now underway. The upgrade will ensure TQEH has the capacity to manage cardiac emergencies and support best quality patient care.
A landmark Memorandum of Understanding with the University of South Australia will see TQEH become a leading nursing and allied health university hospital. Connections with universities, health services and the community will continue to be strengthened, as the hospital becomes the central hub of a Woodville Health and Wellness precinct.
The hospital will continue to grow and respond to the needs of the community, supporting diversity through stronger links with its Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and culturally and linguistically diverse populations.
Due for completion in 2019, the new multi-deck car park will provide 500 parking spaces for patients, families and visitors across five levels, including more than 70 accessible spaces for people with disabilities.
The new car park represents the start of the redevelopment project, paving the way for a new clinical services building, which will be built on the site of the existing northern patient and visitor car park. Construction of the new clinical services building is expected to commence in 2020 and be completed by 2022-23.
Engagement with clinicians and the community will be an important part of planning the redevelopment. Health service and facility planning advisors Carramar and Essentia have been engaged to assist TQEH redevelopment to ensure it reflects clinical and community needs, now and into the future.
The community will be invited to contribute their ideas and feedback throughout the redevelopment.
