Mona Vale Hospital Update

New Beachside Rehabilitation Unit

A new $12 million rehabilitation unit is in operation on the eastern side of the hospital’s campus. This modern building has provided capacity for an additional 26 inpatient beds and a variety of therapy spaces for patients recovering from injury and illness. Extensive renovations have also been completed in the adjoining 30-bed Assessment and Rehabilitation Unit.

New Community Health Service Building

Construction has been completed on a new Community Health Service Building. The new $30 million building accommodates a variety of essential health services including speech pathology, occupational therapy, dental surgery, postnatal services, adult and child mental health, chronic disease clinical rehabilitation, acute post-acute care and physiotherapy.

New Inpatient Building

Plans have been unveiled for a new inpatient building to be constructed on the far-eastern side of the hospital campus. The new building will accommodate a dedicated inpatient palliative care unit and a specialist inpatient geriatric unit. Construction is planned to begin in late 2018.

Helipad Relocation

Mona Vale Hospital’s helicopter facility will soon be relocated to enable the construction of a new inpatient building. The new location will be approximately 100m to the north of the existing helipad.

Hydrotherapy Pool Building

Essential renovations have recently been undertaken to provide improvements in safety, amenity and accessibility. This facility accommodates one of Mona Vale Hospital’s most frequently utilised services and offers treatment and training opportunities to a diversity of patients and community groups.

Palliative Care Outpatient Unit

The recent expansion of this building has provided additional consultation and therapy rooms. The building enjoys ocean views and will soon be joined by the introduction of a dedicated inpatient palliative care unit – the first of its type on the northern beaches.

New 24/7 Urgent Care Centre

Mona Vale Hospital’s existing emergency building will be refurbished to provide a new Urgent Care Centre. The service will treat patients who self-present to the hospital with injuries and illnesses. Patients requiring high-level emergency services will be taken by an ambulance to the major Northern Beaches Hospital. Currently most northern beaches patients requiring high-level emergency services are transported to Royal North Shore Hospital at St Leonards.

New Support Services Building

Construction will soon commence on a new Support Service Building. The new building will accommodate necessary hospital services (including kitchen and laundry services) and will be constructed opposite the Beachside Rehabilitation Unit.
