Mona Vale Hospital’s newest inpatient building is taking shape on the eastern side of the hospital campus.

The new building will accommodate a specialist inpatient geriatric medical unit and an inpatient palliative care unit – the first of its type on the northern beaches.

Ground works are being completed and the construction of the framework is underway. Work is expected to be completed in 2020.

The new building will join other infrastructure projects recently completed or planned at Mona Vale Hospital – including the construction of a new Support Services Building, a new helipad, extensive renovations to the Urgent Care Centre, a new Auxiliary kiosk and the introduction of a purpose built on site ambulance station.

“This new building will be another key addition to Mona Vale Hospital,” Rob Stokes said today.

“New medical services are always great – but the opportunity to provide them in modern and purposely designed buildings is really exciting.

“Of all the new buildings recently constructed at Mona Vale Hospital, this one is particularly significant.

“The ongoing renewal of infrastructure at Mona Vale Hospital ensures our community will have long-term access to high-quality clinical services,” Rob Stokes said.

Other infrastructure projects completed at Mona Vale Hospital in recent years include the new Community Health Services Building in 2016, the Beachside Rehabilitation Unit in 2014 and the expansion of the palliative care outpatient building in 2012.
