Premis recently delivered a major 3 floor refurbishment to the Moreton Bay Integrated Care Centre (MBICC), providing new renal and oncology facilities for north Brisbane residents. The facility has been transformed with an $8.1 million investment in state-of-the-art health care facilities across the three floors.
Minister for Health and Ambulance Services Cameron Dick officially opened the new facilities for Cancer Care Services and Kidney Health Services at the Redcliffe Hospital MBICC (Moreton Bay Integrated Care Centre) on the 19th October.
Prior to the completion of the upgrade, Cancer Care and Kidney Health Services shared a wing on level 6 of the hospital tower. The project – delivered as a staged program – now has a dedicated floor for each service, plus a shared floor for outpatient clinics and patient education.
The new structure also houses a patient lift, external lift shaft, stairwell and link bridges, providing access to the 5 storeys within the existing MBICC building. A major services upgrade was also undertaken, along with the installation of a reverse osmosis renal dialysis system, and the installation of a new generator system for redundant power.
In the oncology and renal treatment facilities people are sedentary and connected to medical services for considerable periods of time. The updated areas now provide a pleasant and comfortable environment for treatment recipients.
Premis worked collaboratively with Conrad Gargett on this project. The patient treatment pods were designed within ‘open plan’ areas for optimal visual connections to health unit activities and are located within the building to take maximum advantage of the natural light and views out to Moreton Bay. Interior design elements also provide a neutral background with minimal highlight colours. This allows for colour to be easily introduced through furnishings and artwork if needed.
This is the fifth project Premis has delivered at Redcliffe Hospital and we look forward to other opportunities to work with them in the future.
