The upgrade works to the existing hospital have taken on a unique and cutting edge approach to emphasising patient needs and the integration of specialist patient services. The new 32 bed ward fit out was designed to soften the appearance of patient’s bed accommodation by being the first health care facility to implement the new Mediwall panel system at the head of each bed. Instead of traditional exposed medical apparatus services being in clear view of patients, the new Mediwall panel systems hide all medical services neatly behind a sleek joinery system. The overall appearance looks more like a relaxed hotel room than a hospital bed which is exactly what the hospital staff and patients were aiming for. This fresh new approach to hospital fit outs also serves a functional purpose for the hospital. The Mediwall panel system allows additional services to be installed into the head of the patient beds without damaging walls and ceilings to reticulate them. It also allows servicing and inspections to be done easily and quickly without disturbing the patients or the function of the hospital. The new ward also incorporated a “Superbed” room with includes a bariatric hoist. This added capacity allows the hospital to cater for carrying specialist patients without the need for a wheelchair or additional mobile equipment. It allows the hospital to do greater activities with less staff as there is no need to assemble multiple staff to attend to people with mobility issues when treating them.
