Mona Vale Hospital’s new Support Services Building is taking shape.

The new building will accommodate modern kitchen, laundry, cleaning, staff and engineering facilities which are essential for the hospital’s ongoing operation.

Groundworks for the new building commenced late last year and structural work is now underway.

“This is yet another important infrastructure improvement at Mona Vale Hospital,” Rob Stokes said today.

“In recent years we’ve seen the start of a series of multi-million dollar building works at Mona Vale Hospital and this latest project is a really important part of the mix.

“The ongoing investment at Mona Vale Hospital is to ensure that new and continuing medical services are provided in modern, state-of-the-art buildings.

“This is not only important for patients – it’s also really important for the hundreds of incredible staff that work at Mona Vale Hospital.

“I’m delighted that for the first time in decades we’re now seeing a continuing flow of funds for infrastructure improvements at Mona Vale Hospital,” Rob Stokes said.

Work is also being finalised on the construction of a new hospital helipad. The helipad is being relocated to enable the construction of a new 20-bed inpatient building on the eastern side of the hospital.

Other upcoming infrastructure projects at Mona Vale Hospital include the construction of a new permanent ambulance facility and extensive renovations to the Urgent Care Centre building.

These projects follow the construction of the new Community Health Service Building in 2016, the Beachside Rehabilitation Unit in 2014 and the expansion of the Palliative Care Outpatient Unit in 2013.
