The project involves the construction of two (2) new endoscopy procedure suites, an instrument cleaning room and refurbishment of the Gastroenterology and Hepatology department with associated support and shell areas. This includes demolition, engineering services infrastructure provisions and engineering services installation.
One of the key goals was to increase the facility's endoscopy activity, therefore the hospital could undertake a full refurbishment of the Gastroenterology and Hepatology Unit. This also includes the expansion of the patient reception and waiting areas, the upgrade and fitout of an existing endoscopy room, and construction of a new endoscopy room.
The unit was reconfigured and involve the relocation of Stages 1 and 2 of the Post Procedure Recovery Areas, as well as general refurbishment and improvement to the department and ancillary services.
