THE VALLEY PRIVATE HOSPITAL (Project Detail Coming Soon)

The Valley Private Hospital is a leading Private Hospital in Melbourne`s eastern suburbs owned by Australian Unity and operated by Healthe Care. The hospital has had little alteration since its construction in the early 80`s. Healthe Care planned the expansion of the Hospital to more than double its utilisation and capacity. The project included the following elements:

  • New two story Ward building with four new Operating Theatres and a New Hybrid Cath Lab Theatre;
  • Rebuilding the existing three theatres with all new services, pendants and tables;
  • New Endoscopy Suite Day Surgery for up to 80 procedures a day;
  • Refurbishment of existing wards including new bathrooms, all services, DU and CU facilities and nurses stations;
  • Two new Recovery wards (General and Hybrid Theatre);
  • New ICU wing; New/refurbished CCU wing;
  • New CSSD facility;
  • Replacement of medical gas system within the hospital and provision of a large oxygen storage facility;
  • Provision of a new emergency power plant (1100 kva);
  • Replacement of sub-station which was in a basement space;
  • New UPS system for all major installations;
  • Replacement of major AC plant, chillers and hot water boilers;
  • New Emergency and Ambulance facilities

Overcoming challenges

During the works the hospital remained fully operational including the Emergency Department and Theatres. This required daily planning of building operations with the hospital CEO and Director of Nursing. Not one day of hospital operations was lost during the works.

We developed a system of airtight hoardings to use around the hospital to contain the works which was highly successful.

Every portion of the works was handed over with full documentation and defect free. There were no defects at the end of the DLP to be attended to. The Department of Health was extremely happy with all of the works and comments were limited to a few design issues.
