The $9.7 million refurbishment of St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital is essentially complete, with only some minor work remaining.  The 12-month project, which was started in November 2016, has seen all rooms and ensuites refurbished, four new patients’ rooms built and an increase in single room capacity.

New spaces on the ground floor include an extended foyer with airlock entry, a new chapel, a multipurpose room, three new consulting suites and a café, while on the first floor the occupational therapy ADL kitchen, OT gym and pharmacy have all been upgraded. The ambulance entrance has been moved to a new undercover area at the rear of the hospital to improve traffic flow and ease of patient entry, while a new 17-tonne generator and upgraded airconditioning and plumbing are among the many mechanical and service improvements carried out behind the scenes.

Hospital chief executive officer Sally Faulkner said the most critical component of the refurbishment was to increase the number of single rooms to better support patients through their recovery. “We have converted our three and four-bed rooms to two-bed rooms and refurbished all bathrooms,” Sally said. “Providing our patients with greater comfort and privacy was our ultimate goal.”

Access is incredibly important for a rehabilitation hospital, and new front and rear entrances will make this easier for patients as well as vehicles that transport patients after surgery or injury.

“While this was a comprehensive and detailed refurbishment, it occurred in stages to minimise the impact on our inpatient and outpatient services. There was a buzz of excitement as each stage was finished and we are so pleased with the result.

“Living through a refurbishment is never easy with disruption and changes. We are very thankful to our patients and families for their understanding as we have undertaken this essential work.”
