St Stephen's Hospital
September 2014 ($50M) Queensland - Australia
These works expanded the previous 8 bed acute care day facility to a 96-bed acute care hospital with five operating theatres, six oncology bays, isolation bays and dialysis bays. The hospital also provides training for nursing students and allied health placements.
The new construction completely surrounds the existing facility which was operational at all times. Understanding our clients business and how our activities can impact on their operations enabled surgeries to continue whilst the whole Eastern façade of the existing building was removed to allow the new structure to be connected to the existing structure.
As Australia’s first fully digital hospital, the project was a significant development for the Fraser Coast region providing a number of economic benefits and an improved range of medical services for the community. The innovative e-health system allows easier access to patient records for medical staff as well as providing alerts to allergies and abnormalities in testing results, linking to other parts of the health system and specialist practitioners.
