Morrison Place entrance closed

October 6, 2014

The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital’s redevelopment project is progressing rapidly.

Construction is set to begin on the new state-of-the-art Emergency Department, the first stage of which is due to be completed in the second quarter of 2015.

To progress works on the new Emergency Department and the new Ambulance Bay and North-East Corner, the builders require full access to the Ground Floor Smorgon Family Wing.

Therefore, the Morrison Place entrance is closed for approximately nine months, meaning the only entrance to the hospital is via Gisborne Street.

For all patient pick-up and drop-off please use the Gisborne Street entrance, there will be no access to the hospital via Morrison Place.

Patients and visitors are encouraged to take public transport or use the Wilson Parking facilities at 410 Albert Street and 90 Victoria Parade.

CEO Ann Clark says she understands the temporary closure will cause some inconveniences, however she urges everyone to think of the long-term benefits.

“I encourage all patients and visitors to please be mindful of the disruptions, please be patient as we build you a better hospital.”
