Our Hospital: Our Redevelopment
Joondalup Health Campus is expanding as part of a $393m redevelopment which is delivering extensive new facilities and expanded services for public and private patients.
Construction started in September 2009 and is set to finish in early 2013 – months ahead of schedule and under budget thanks to careful management by Ramsay Health Care and our construction partners John Holland Group.
The redevelopment is funded by the Western Australia State Government ($230m), Ramsay Health Care ($163m) and the Federal Government ($25m) with local universities – Curtin, Edith Cowan and the University of Western Australia – contributing $6m towards the new clinical school.
In March 2012 WA Health Minister Dr Kim Hames officially opened the new theatre block at Joondalup Health Campus – a major milestone in the $393m expansion of the hospital. The block includes 12 operating theatres – twice as many as before – a nine-bed intensive care unit, a six-bed high dependency unit and a 10-bed coronary care unit. The new operating theatres are among the most advanced in Australia. They include four state-of-the-art iSuites with video and touch screen technology to enable surgeons to view and capture images from inside the body while they operate. Seven of the new operating theatres commenced operation in March, with the remaining five new theatres due to open in September when more recovery bays become available.
When complete, the hospital will have 498 beds for public patients and 145-beds for private patients. The expansion will ensure the vast majority of people living in Perth’s northern corridor will be able to receive the care they need at Joondalup Health Campus.
