Destravis was engaged by MSHHS to conduct master plans across their major health facilities in the HHS, including Redland Hospital. This presented a unique opportunity to consider the requirements for the HHS as a whole and to consider the most efficient and effective options for investment in capital infrastructure on each of these campuses to ensure quality health service delivery throughout the HHS.
Redland Hospital is a 200-bed public hospital providing care in a number of specialties and allied health services to people in the Bayside. The Bayside catchment is projected to grow in population to 277,807 by 2026 and the Hospital wishes to expand all services and reverse this out flow of patients. In addition to doubling bed numbers over the next 15 years, all core and support services would require proportional increases in space and amenity.
The Master Plan enables an increased level of self-sufficiency in the facility which has the dual benefit of attracting other specialised services and increasing staff retention. Within the broader picture of the HHS, it also reduces pressure placed on Princess Alexandra Hospital as the key referral hospital.
The master plan for Redland Hospital has resulted in:
A design solution allowing for maximisation of value of the current assets
A sequence of works that does not impact on clinical service delivery in the Main Hospital building
A design solution which minimises abortive work through careful phasing for once only construction of works
Organise the site according to integration of functional zones
Improve the accessibility of the facility for patents, staff and visitors
Focus on long term way finding and circulation
Limit redundant new build
Avoid disruption and redundant works on infrastructure services
Avoid disruption on existing health service delivery by limiting to single decanting.
