Redevelopment update

March 18, 2015

The first image was taken in June 2014; the second was taken in January 2015

As you can see from the images, construction has progressed on the new Emergency Department.

The first stage of the Emergency Department is due to be completed in the second half of this year.

While the Emergency Department and north-east corner works are continuing, the Morrison Place entrance will remain closed until the middle of the 2015.

In December 2014, the hospital in collaboration with Lyons Architects produced and coordinated consultation boards. Patients and visitors to the Eye and Ear were encouraged to provide feedback on proposed materials, signage, waiting areas and seating.

The feedback was positive and there was clear preference for the type of seating that could be used in the waiting rooms. The results of the survey will be incorporated when implementing systems and designs.
