Gisborne Street entrance re-opened

The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital’s Gisborne Street entrance and the Acute Ophthalmology Service (AOS) waiting area have re-opened.

The entrance and foyer were closed for 19 consecutive days to allow builders to progress works on the hospital’s redevelopment project.

Acting CEO, Jenni Gratton-Vaughan says the closure ran smoothly.  

“Thank you to all patients, carers, visitors and staff whom were inconvenienced during the time of disruption,” she said.

“And to the volunteers who helped redirect patients and visitors, your time and assistance is always appreciated.”

While the Gisborne Street foyer and stairs have re-opened, the new disability access ramp on Gisborne Street will open on Monday 4 August.

This new ramp will be used for the duration of the redevelopment project, until the permanent ramp is constructed in 2017.
