 Mona Vale Hospital Update

Rehabilitation Unit Expansion

Major works are currently underway on the eastern side of the hospital as part of a $12m expansion of Mona Vale Hospital's rehabilitation unit. Once completed, the new unit will accommodate an additional 26 patients and see a welcome improvement in the quality of services available to local residents.

Palliative Care Unit Upgrade

Construction has recently been completed on a substantial upgrade to Mona Vale Hospital's palliative care unit, on the far eastern perimeter of the hospital, which enjoys expansive ocean views. This upgrade will provide a huge boost to our local health services and improved support to the most vulnerable members of our community.

Emergency Department Expansion

Work has recently commenced on a significant upgrade of Mona Vale Hospitalís Emergency Department that will increase its capacity by 10 beds. $1.8 million has been secured to construct a new Short Stay Unit, within the existing Emergency Department, that will improve options for emergency staff and better accommodate patients who may need to be monitored for an extended period, but do not require admission into the hospitalís general wards or transfer to another health facility.

New Community Health Building

Work is due to commence shortly on the construction of a new multi-storey community health building on the eastern side of the hospitalís grounds. This major project will involve a capital investment of over $30 million and once completed will provide a diversity of community health services and state-of-the-art consultation, treatment and staff facilities.

Helipad Upgrade

The upgrade of Mona Vale Hospital's rehabilitation and palliative care units has been augmented by the provision of a new and enlarged helipad to enable modern helicopters to receive and transfer patients to specialised care. This project has recently been completed and provides a welcome addition to Mona Vale Hospital's facilities.

Maternity Services

In July 2009 maternity services were temporarily re-located to Manly Hospital whilst asbestos removal renovations were carried out on the maternity ward. Following a substantial allocation of funds by the NSW Liberal Government in the 2011/12 State Budget, Mona Vale Hospital's maternity ward has now been comprehensively upgraded and birthing recommenced in July 2012.
