Situated within the Nepean Hospital health precinct, the state-of-the-art healthcare hub is delivering world-leading care to the Western Sydney community.
The centre features 6,300sqm of space for healthcare service providers, including five theatres, 16 private hospital rooms, day treatment facilities, a radiation therapy linear accelerator and a broad range of diagnostic services.
Consisting of four basement levels and four levels above ground the development also included the construction of two suspended Radiology Bunkers on the ground floor.
ADP have been proactively engaged with the current and future stakeholders to deliver a highly efficient building with the flexibility to cater for both medical and non-medical tenants.
Our team are providing mechanical, electrical, fire, hydraulics, Section J, vertical transportation and ESD services to achieve a target 4.5 Star NABERS Energy Base Building rating.
The new hybrid operating theatre is among the most sophisticated theatres in Australia featuring state-of-the art medical infrastructure and artificial intelligence backed Robotic Imaging technology to enhance and grow existing cardiac surgical services available at the hospital.
Some key elements of the projects were: the associated hybrid theatre control room and anaesthetic bay, refurbished and expanded ICU and recovery beds, new theatre staff change amenities, and staff rooms and services for a future stat lab.
The suite combines the advantages of a surgical operating theatre with high-end imaging to allow teams of cardiologists, interventionalists, surgeons, radiologists, and nurses to treat patients requiring complex surgical work for cardiac and vascular disease.
A technically complex project, we utilised our health expertise from our Melbourne office from the earliest stages of the project to deliver the best design outcomes to the client. The project was split into 5 main sections and is one of the most technical operating theatres that ADP has completed to date.
Involving both new build and refurbishment works, the new hybrid theatre was located half in the existing building and half in the new section of the building. This represented significant coordination issues with the existing structural support as well as the new structure.
The works were completed without impacting hospital services being delivered in the existing adjacent operating theatres, which remained fully operational throughout the project. Our experienced health team worked in close collaboration with critical stakeholders, to ensure that any risks were mitigated, minimising any impact on patients and visitors.
With the first patient welcomed on Jan 30th 2018, this state of the art hospital facility is providing health services for up to 16,000 patients. St Vincent’s Private Hospital Werribee (SVPHW) facilities includes a day procedure centre, four operating theatres (one theatre Cath Lab), 32 acute medical/surgical/rehabilitation beds, 16 maternity birth suites as well as a nursery, support areas, kitchen, stores, chapel, car parking and shell spaces for consulting rooms, medical imaging, additional wards and theatres.
The hospital is seen as a significant investment in the city of Wyndham which lies to the west of Melbourne and has the fastest growing population in Australia.
Beside the hospital is the new residential aged care facility which will be home to 80 residents with dementia and low, high and respite care needs.
One of the key challenges for the building services was designing the central services to accommodate future stages and maintaining flexibility whilst staying on budget. Our team achieved this by preparing a ‘master plan’ for the development to identify how the site will operate at its ultimate.
With a large upfront cost premium to the development, to save money in the long run, ADP provided clever cost saving methodologies. This enabled easy upgrades to key plant and services to the hospital ensuring operations throughout the hospital will not impacted.
Set on 4 hectares of greenfield land along Myoora Road, this specialist 84 bed Private Hospital will provide the surrounding community with the following high-end surgery and therapy facilities;
- A radiology department equipped with CT, MRI, X-Ray and ultrasound imaging capabilities.
- Intensive care unit equipped with patient isolation rooms
- Hydrotherapy pool and gymnasium for physiotherapy
- Rehabilitation wards and hospital beds
- Six new specialist operating theatres and recovery rooms
- Specialist consulting suites and staff support offices
The hospital is inspired by the surrounding natural landscaped setting of Duffy’s Forest, which along with its natural beauty is steeped in Australian history. The hospital will be divided into 3 pavilion style buildings separated by landscaped courtyards which will provide an intuitive connection to the outdoors. The design of the hospital has allowed for a light filled building which will provide a positive influence on health and wellbeing as well as responding to the needs of patients, their families and hospital staff.
ADP are providing the design for the building services, including specialist facilities, throughout the hospital.
We carried out an initial due diligence report determining the existing infrastructure to the site and the associated impacts on the hospital development. This due diligence report, along with concept planning and sustainability advice, formed an important component of obtaining council DA approval and ensuring the project remains on-schedule.
