Defining designs | Project WA
The largest building infrastructure undertaken by
the State Government, Fiona Stanley Hospital was
completed in December 2013, impressively ahead
of time and within budget.
Chosen for its central, south-of-Perth location,
the adjacent established health and learning
institutes, and access to major roads and public
transport, the 32ha site will be the major tertiary
health facility in the south metropolitan area.
The 783-bed hospital is the result of investments
from both state and federal governments, and
a collaboration between Brookfield Multiplex and
design firms Silver Thomas Hanley, HASSELL
and Hames Sharley. Major facilities include the
state burns service, a comprehensive cancer
centre, state-of-the-art emergency care, and the
$255 million 140-bed state rehabilitation service,
funded by the Australian Government.
More than five hectares of natural bush land,
parks, internal gardens, courtyards and plazas
are integrated within the site, which uses enough
power and light cabling to stretch from Perth to
Exmouth. Parking is available for 3600 vehicles.
COST $2 billion
TIMELINE The hospital will open in a four-phased
sequence commencing in October 2014
SIZE 32ha site, including 155,000sqm of floor space
