Mona Vale Hospital Update

More than 370 doctors, nurses, allied health professionals and support staff are employed at Mona Vale Hospital. The number of staff will continue to increase as the ongoing infrastructure projects are completed and more medical services come online. The entire hospital campus has been secured in public ownership and all medical, emergency medicine and community health services continue to be provided by NSW Health.

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

A new Community Health Service Building has been constructed on the eastern side of the hospital campus. The $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 24/7 Urgent Care Centre

Mona Vale Hospital’s emergency building is being refurbished for the hospital's 24/7 Urgent Care Centre. The service manages patients who self-present to the hospital with injuries and illnesses. The unit is staffed by emergency-trained doctors and nurses. Patients requiring higher-level emergency services can be transferred by ambulance to the major Northern Beaches Hospital.

New Inpatient Building

Construction is nearing completion on a new 20-bed inpatient building on the eastern side of the hospital campus. The new building will accommodate a dedicated inpatient palliative care unit and a specialist inpatient geriatric medical unit. Construction is expected to be completed in 2020.

New Support Services Building

Construction has been finalised on a new Support Services Building. The new building accommodates a variety of necessary hospital support services (including kitchen, laundry and engineering) and is situated opposite the Beachside Rehabilitation Unit.

New Helipad

Mona Vale Hospital’s helicopter facility has been relocated to enable the construction of a new inpatient building. The new location is approximately 100m to the north of the previous helipad.

Hydrotherapy Pool Building

Renovations have 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.

New Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Unit

Construction has been completed for a new 10-bed inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation unit. This specialist unit will become an important part of the current and future inpatient medical services available at Mona Vale Hospital.

New Kiosk

The new kiosk is now open, serving staff, patients and visitors. The newly constructed kiosk is operated by the hospital’s Auxiliary volunteers and is positioned next to the Urgent Care Centre at the front of the hospital. The kiosk is open 8:30am-3pm Monday to Saturday and all proceeds are reinvested back into the hospital by the Auxiliary.

Palliative Care Outpatient Unit Expansion

The 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 Ambulance Station

Construction is underway on 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.
