Ageing assets at Atherton Hospital are contributing to inefficiencies in workflows and reducing the hospital’s ability to respond to changing service requirements. The hospital faces a lack of appropriate facilities and amenities required to meet the growing healthcare requirements of an ageing population.


The objectives of the proposal are to improve the hospital’s physical environment, enhance service delivery and plan for future growth. Options are being investigated which include improvements to the emergency department and operating theatre.
