For over 60 years, your Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) has been at the heart of health in the West.
The upgrade will provide world-class emergency, surgical, medical, mental health and rehabilitation services for many years to come.
A new, modern Emergency Department will be built at your QEH, to continue to provide emergency care to the approximately 45,000 patients it treats each year.
As happens now, if you present to the Emergency Department, you will be seen and treated by emergency clinicians no matter what your condition, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Local residents will get their elective surgery quicker in a dedicated elective surgery centre. New operating theatres and a day surgery suite will mean more surgical procedures can be provided at your QEH. This extra capacity will mean fewer elective surgery postponements as well as shorter waiting times. A modern medical imaging suite will Support these surgical services and other health services at the hospital.
More car parking will be available with a new 500 space multi-deck car park.
Improvements will include two upgraded cardiac cath labs, with the capacity to treat cardiac emergencies 24/7, and an inpatient cardiac unit.
This means Western suburbs residents experiencing a heart attack can be treated at QEH where they will be assessed and treated by highly specialised staff.
A new Intensive Care Unit will provide highly specialised care and monitoring to the most critically ill patients.
Purpose-built brain and spinal cord injury rehabilitation facilities will be built, including specialised rehabilitation spaces and a hydrotherapy pool, to enable the transfer of these services from Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre.
A new purpose-built Short Stay Mental Health Unit is being built, meaning mental health consumers will be able to receive care faster.
Existing local health services will continue to be provided at your QEH, including cardiology, cancer and respiratory care.
This means you will still be able to receive treatment for conditions such as diabetes, renal dialysis, kidney dialysis and mental health. Services such as general medicine and Geriatric Evaluation and Management will continue to be provided.
The redevelopment will increase the number of outpatient clinics at the hospital, meaning patients in the Western suburbs can attend follow up appointments, closer to home. Existing outpatient services will continue to be provided, including cardiology, respiratory, cancer, neurology and post-stroke care. The Pain Management Unit from the Royal Adelaide Hospital will be located at your QEH.
Investments are being made in our hospital system so all South Australians have access to world-class care. In addition to a major upgrade of your QEH, Emergency Departments are being upgraded at Lyell McEwin Hospital, Flinders Medical Centre and Modbury Hospital. There will be more ambulances and stations, and a new hospital for women and newborns next to the new Royal Adelaide Hospital.
