Good progress on emergency department expansion


Work on the new emergency department at Canberra Hospital is progressing well, with the first stage almost complete.

The new Emergency Medical Unit and the Mental Health Short Stay Unit will open later this year, and a new paediatric area will follow in January 2016. Other new areas will open progressively throughout 2016.

When complete, the expanded emergency department will have extra beds, three more ambulance bays and an extra 1000 square metres of floor area.
