A staged transformation of our hospital that will enable us to meet the future health care needs of Western Australians.

St John of God Subiaco Hospital is undergoing a major transformation that will build on its 125 year old legacy of delivering quality, patient-centred care in a contemporary environment that supports healing, new life, clinical excellence and innovation.  

The hospital needs a major capital investment to ready it for the next 20 years and enable it to cater for the future health care needs of the community.

The redevelopment is driven by the need to:

  • replace aging infrastructure;
  • improve patient amenity and experience;
  • reposition the hospital as a contemporary health care facility; and
  • provide additional clinical capacity required to meet forecast future demand.

The redevelopment involves a transformation across five stages. Plans for stages three to five are currently with the State Development Assessment Unit for approval.

Stage one is complete and included construction of a temporary caregiver car park to reduce the impact to visitor parking.

Stage two is ongoing and will finish at the end of 2023. It includes:

  • kitchen refurbishments to allow for hospital-wide a la carte room service;
  • expansion and upgrade of the Sterilisation Services Department; 
  • brand new six bed ward; and
  • new service block lifts and courtyard infill development. 


Stage three will commence in early 2024 and includes important engineering and enabling works for stage four. The stage three works include:

  • new site energy plant and site water plant;
  • secondary and tertiary engineering upgrades;
  • site-wide lift replacement program; and
  • level two main lobby refurbishment.


Stage four will see the construction of an eight-storey New Clinical Block including:

  • dedicated Mother and Baby Centre including large bedroom suites, Obstetric Theatre, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Maternal Foetal Assessment Unit;
  • new Heart Centre bringing together cardiology experts and equipment;
  • six new operating theatres with state-of-the-art equipment; and
  • new Chapel.


Stage five includes the construction of a new 11-storey building to house medical suites, education and research.
