Several spaces across Prince of Wales Hospital (PoWH) will soon be refurbished, as part of the Randwick Campus Redevelopment.

Newly appointed building partner, Renascent, recently met with the PoWH Change and Commissioning Team and project managers, RP Infrastructure, to be shown around the spaces planned for refurbishment.

A major update to the former ED space on Dickinson Level 0 will provide a home for the new Kidney Care Centre, bringing together the renal clinics, haemodialysis, Eora and home dialysis training teams. This integrated unit will allow comprehensive care for patients at all stages of their treatment journey.

The space adjacent, previously occupied by PECC, will be refurbished for the security department to move into, along with the provision of on-call rooms for staff.

The Central Equipment Store will move from its temporary location on Level 2 of the Acute Services Building and into the former Central Sterilizing Services Department space on Level 3 of the Campus Centre building once it has been redesigned and fit-out as a space for storage, cleaning and maintenance of shared equipment.

Relevant teams will shortly begin the detailed design phase, looking closely at each room’s functionality and purpose. The clinical teams will be working closely with the Change and Commissioning team during the next few months, to fine tune their Model of Care, ready for service delivery.

Refurbishment works are set to get underway in coming months and continue throughout the year.
