NEED

The scope and scale of Logan Hospital’s services and physical infrastructure are insufficient to meet existing demand. Factors driving this demand include a growing and ageing population, and disproportionate demand for emergency services. Capacity constraints have resulted in extended Emergency Department and outpatient waiting times, Emergency Department overcrowding and delays in provision of care.

PROPOSAL

The proposal investigates options to improve existing facilities by building a new Emergency Department either as a standalone facility or on top of existing buildings.

The project is expected to:

  • increase service access at Logan Hospital and reduce burden on out of locality services
  • reduce reliance on Emergency Department short-stay
  • improve facilities and health care services
  • improve work conditions for staff and staff retention
  • improve education opportunities.
