6 Months to Go

Jul 01, 2015

Ramsay Health Care’s Wollongong Private Hospital development continues to progress well with 6 months to go until the hospital’s opening.

The hospital structure is now complete and the façade is well progressed, with scaffold starting to be removed along the Crown St and Urunga Parade elevations. This will enable the installation of awnings to take place and external works including civil works, paving and ultimately landscaping to commence.

Internally, fit out of hospital floors is advancing with finishes trades now commencing on the hospital floors. The substation was successfully energised early June 2016 which will enable permanent power to be established throughout the building within the next 1-2 months. Commissioning of major services and equipment will follow and will continue until later in the year.

Preparation to open is well underway, and excitement continues to build. The first private patients will be admitted to the hospital on 18th January 2016. Wollongong Private Hospital’s management team is being put in place, with a number of key positions being appointed recently.

Hospital CEO, David Crowe, said “It is exciting to be at this point in the Wollongong Private Hospital development after numerous years of planning and construction. The new hospital will deliver a comprehensive range of inpatient and day services across a wide range of specialities, providing an increased private hospital capacity and choice for patients in the Illawarra.”
