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 20-bed 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 2019.

Helipad Relocation

Mona Vale Hospital’s helicopter facility is being relocated to enable the construction of a new inpatient building. The new location is 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 emergency building is being refurbished for the hospital's new 24/7 Urgent Care Centre. The service manages patients who self-present to the hospital with injuries and illnesses. Patients requiring high-level emergency services can be transferred by ambulance to the major Northern Beaches Hospital.

New Support Services Building

Construction has commenced on a new Support Services Building. The new building will accommodate necessary hospital services (including kitchen and laundry services) and is being constructed opposite the Beachside Rehabilitation Unit.

New Ambulance Station

Plans are being finalised for the construction of a permanent NSW Ambulance station on the western side of the Mona Vale Hospital campus. This will replace a temporary ambulance facility introduced at Mona Vale Hospital in early 2018.
