The South Australian Government is investing more than $90 million in Modbury Hospital to enable us to treat more seriously ill patients closer to home.
This follows extensive consultation with the local community, clinicians and staff and will see an increase in the number of medical and surgical beds at the hospital, as well as a new, purpose built hospice to provide a more dignified environment for end-of-life care.
The establishment of a new $9.2 million Extended Emergency Care Unit and an $8.9 million Acute Medical Unit, both located next to the hospital’s Emergency Department, will allow most patients to be seen sooner, treated and discharged at Modbury Hospital, with fewer transfers to other hospitals.
A further $15.6 million will be invested to create a state-of-the-art palliative care facility with 16 individual rooms with private bathrooms, to provide contemporary care in a modern setting.
Building a new hospice will create a much needed comfortable and respectful surrounding for patients who require dedicated end-of-life care. In addition, families of our palliative patients will for the first time be able to stay with their loved ones in private rooms, creating a dignified environment to spend quality time together.
$35.4 million is being invested in an Acute Surgical Unit, to enable a wider range of surgeries to be carried out at the hospital.
A $22.5 million infrastructure upgrade to improve the building’s lift, power and air conditioning systems, as well as an upgrade of the building’s façade.
Construction is expected to begin in 2018.
Modbury Hospital operates a specialist-led Emergency Department 24/7.
If you present to Modbury Hospital Emergency Department, you will be seen and treated by emergency clinicians, no matter what your condition is. While the vast majority of patients will continue to be treated at Modbury Hospital before being discharged home, if you require ongoing, specialist care not available at Modbury Hospital, you will be stabilised before being transferred to another hospital such as the Lyell McEwin Hospital.
In a medical emergency, always call 000. Please do not self-present to a hospital or your local GP.
Ambulances are the safest way to be assessed, treated and transported to the right hospital to receive the best clinical care for your condition. Our highly trained paramedics and ambulance officers can start advanced lifesaving treatment and stabilise your condition at any scene, and will make a decision about the best hospital to take you to for the care you need.
