Wayfinding and signage improvement

St John of God Murdoch Hospital has worked with wayfinding specialists, campus users and consumers to produce a new way of assisting patients and visitors to find their way onto and around the campus.



New Chapel and Foyer Refurbishment

foyer refurbishment

Upgrading the Murdoch Foyer and construction of our new Chapel is about to commence, and will be managed in several stages to ensure our patients, visitors, caregivers, medical practitioners and other suppliers maintain access to the hospital.

Key features:

  • New Chapel
  • New Patient Administration and expanded patient waiting area
  • New reception desk
  • Expanded foyer area
  • Expanded ambulance and patient drop-off / pick-up area  

To enable construction, between May 2015 and April 2016, access to various sections of the foyer area and main hospital entrance portico will be restricted. Diversions and signage will be in place to enable safe and easy access to various destinations around the hospital.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as this final exciting part of our redevelopment gets underway, renewing and enhancing some key areas of the hospital and creating an even more welcoming environment for patients, visitors, caregivers and medical practitioners.



Ward refurbishment

As part of stage 2 of the Murdoch Redevelopment project, the six original 1994 wards located in the hospital’s North Wing are being refurbished. The general finish will mirror the style of the new South Wing wards, with minor alterations to general layouts. We will refurbish one ward at a time, with construction commencing in May 2015.

Every step will be taken to avoid noise and vibration during the refurbishment, however as with all construction works some disturbances are possible. We appreciate your patience and understanding during the refurbishments, and we look forward to bringing our original wards up to the same stunning standard as our new South Wing wards.

Project Summary

The redevelopment features more beds, more theatres, expansions of key departments and a new medical centre.
