Latest news: Tying up loose ends: Stage One Complete

Stage one of the $200m+ St John of God Murdoch Hospital redevelopment is now complete, ahead of time and on budget.

The final areas completed include the refurbishment and expansions of CSSD, ICU/CCU, Theatre holding, Kitchen Expansion and the Wexford Car Park.

Thanks go to the redevelopment project team, managers and caregivers of the new and refurbished areas, our support services, and all our caregivers, volunteers, medical practitioners, patients and visitors who lived and worked through the challenging and exciting process of building an even better Murdoch.

Following the opening of two additional theatres in December, our hospital will feature:

  • 507 beds (up from 363)
  • 25 ICU/CCU beds (up from 15)
  • 16 theatres (up from 10)
  • 1824 car parking bays (up from 1375)
  • 1700 caregivers (up from 1500)
  • Provision of outstanding care for almost 75,000 patients per year (up from 50,000).

Redevelopment – Stage 2

No sooner has the dust settled on stage 1, than stage 2 of the redevelopment is upon us!

Stage 2 comprises:

  • Refurbishment of the six original 1994 wards (St Michael, St Joseph, Bridget Clancy, St Elizabeth, St Luke, St Emilie)
  • Refurbishment of the main hospital entrance foyer
  • New Chapel
