Refurbishment moves ahead

General Manager of Wyong Hospital, Chris Bone and Wyong Redevelopment Manager Kate Rutledge were thrilled to accept the keys to the new Wyong Hospital building from the building contractor, Richard Crookes Constructions recently.
The key handover marks the end of construction of the new building which is set to open on Tuesday, 12 October.
The building, known as ‘Block H,’ features a new and expanded emergency department with capacity for an additional 13 treatment spaces, and a new and expanded intensive care unit (ICU), which will open with an additional treatment space.
“Both the emergency department and intensive care unit have been designed with the capacity to grow to meet additional demand for these services in the future. Some of this future space could be used as part of our pandemic response if needed,” Chris said.
“It is particularly pleasing to be opening these new and expanded critical care services at this crucial point in our COVID response.
“The past few months have been a very challenging time for everyone, including staff at Wyong Hospital. I know our staff have been looking forward to the opening of the building and welcoming patients into this wonderful, state-of-the-art new facility.”
The Wyong Redevelopment Team is now putting the finishing touches on the building including installing furniture and equipment and cleaning the building to make it ready to start accepting patients next week.
