Project Description

Emergency Centre Upgrade

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Help us upgrade one of the busiest units in the Hospital

Kylie was dancing outside her house with her friends one afternoon when a white car came rushing down the road with the sound of gunshots coming from the car. The next thing she knew she was on the ground with a bullet in her back. Seriously injured, she was rushed to the 24-hour Emergency Centre at the Red Cross Children’s Hospital.

No-one plans to end up in an emergency unit. But when they do, there is no time to waste. This means making sure that any Emergency facility is designed to give the best possible care in the shortest space of time.

This project will give the Hospital’s Emergency Centre a much-needed upgrade – addressing delays and disruptions so that critically ill patients and their families are given the best possible care and support.

Building work began in April 2019 and will be delivered in two phases that run until 2020.

Designed in partnership with the Hospital Management team, improvements will include an upgrade of medical and trauma resuscitation areas, and an increase in the number of consultation and procedure rooms. The project will also add new areas to the centre, including: quarantine, a rehydration corner, a containment room, a new child protection unit and family friendly waiting areas.

Over 45 000 children are treated at the Emergency Centre every year.

24 hour medical, surgical, nursing and paramedical services.
