Consultation

  • With clinicians, other service providers, service users

    • Outside access for staff and patients

    • RDH as a hub and spoke with Palmerston Hospital


Configuration of Services

  • Emergency Department with 10 bays plus 8 Paediatric Short Stay Unit beds

  • 60 inpatient beds across two wards including general, surgical and maternity

  • 2 Birthing Suites

  • 2 Operating theatres and a procedure room

  • Outpatient clinics

  • 24/7 medical imaging

  • Pharmacy and Pathology


Service delivery approach

  • Palmerston Hospital will locally manage demand for some services.

  • High intensity services with low numbers of presentations will not be duplicated (eg ICU).

  • Palmerston Hospital will provide a key pathway for these services where there is a presentation at Palmerston.


Concept Master Development Plan

  • Proposed layout sees the main entry to the Hospital oriented to Cook Street.

  • Emergency Services access via Cook Street off Temple Terrace.

  • Access via Gurd St off Roystonea Avenue

  • Detailed analysis required to consider traffic management, controls and road alignments.
