Cotton On Foundation Children's Ward redevelopment
The Cotton On Foundation Children’s Ward redevelopment is a three-year, five-stage project, completed in January 2013.
The objectives of the project were to provide updated facilities that would create an environment that would be pleasing to children and adolescents alike and a ward that promotes good health and recovery that suits the needs of patients, parents and staff.
Each bedroom has had an ensuite added to the room, where previously a common bathroom was shared by patients on the ward. A dedicated isolation room has been created as well as a new nurse’s station and redeveloped play area. A purpose-built pharmacy has been added, along with a dedicated day oncology treatment room. New staff and parent amenities have been established and a redeveloped outdoor playground is in the planning stages for completion during 2013.
Approximately 3,500 children are cared for in the ward each year, so the redeveloped ward will have a positive impact on many local children and their families.
