how to build a hospital

planning and design process

Redeveloping a hospital can be a complex process. Every redevelopment is tailored to the unique needs of its local community. 

Once the Local Health District (LHD) completes the Clinical Services Plan (CSP), Health Infrastructure along with the LHD appoint a Lead Design Team to begin planning for the redevelopment. This involves creating a hospital campus master plan, which is then used to develop a concept design.

Combining information from the CSP, master plan and concept design, a business case is developed that outlines the scope and budget for the redevelopment.

Once this extensive planning and design process is approved, building can then start. Project delivery involves the award of a construction tender with the successful contractor beginning construction works that can include enabling works, early works and main works. As many redevelopments take place on existing hospital sites, it is essential that works are staged to not compromise the day-to-day operations of the staff and clinicians in providing excellent and continued patient care.
