Rockingham Hospital Redevelopment

Project Description

The Rockingham General Hospital redevelopment commenced in 2006 and involved the upgrade from a 70-bed facility to a 239-bed facility and incorporation of new departments to address the model of care needed.

Key improvements included a new mental health facility and the doubling of operating theatres from two to four.

The hospitals capacity has now expanded to become one of four general hospitals in the metropolitan area, delivering a comprehensive range of core clinical services to the South Metropolitan Area Health Service.

This role required NS Projects to develop a thorough understanding of the current challenges faced within the health sector, including the need to find innovative procurement solutions that bring essential services online within shortened time frames, whilst maintaining the operation of the current hospital.
