We are investing $23 million to reinstate the high dependency unit as part of the $114.6 million major upgrade at Modbury Hospital.

This upgrade is making sure that Modbury is a modern, functional local hospital, and is delivering:

  • An expansion of the surgical floor to allow for more surgeries
  • Development of a four-bed High Dependency Unit
  • Eight additional beds created in an Extended Emergency Care Unit
  • Co-locating the EECU with an upgraded 26 bed Short Stay General Medical Unit
  • A new purpose-built 20-bed Palliative Care Unit to ensure patients are cared for in a suitable environment
  • Relocating the Outpatients Department to allow more streamlined access in a more efficient location
  • Updating the fa├žade to modern standards.
