Mount Hospital donates beds due to redevelopment

Updated (12 June 2024)

Have you ever wondered what happens to beds when wards in hospitals undergo a redevelopment or upgrade? 

At the Mount Hospital, we give them a new purpose by donating them to very a worthy cause.

Following the commencement of redevelopment works, the Mount Private Hospital donated 42 beds and over bed tables to Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS).

RAWCS runs a program called the Rotary Australia Repurposing Equipment (RARE) which supports the donation of medical equipment to disadvantaged overseas communities.   

The donation was a team effort with ADCO, the builders who are managing the redevelopment works also pitched in by providing the labour and transport to transfer the beds to RAWCS.

GM Greg Brylski lead the proceedings with saying, 'It’s very exciting to finally see work underway on our redevelopment.

Before the team enjoyed a lovely morning tea on the picturesque Balcony of the Mount Hospital, State Manager, Tim Daniel rounded of the speeches with saying 'Well done to everyone involved in getting us to this point. These upgrades will be a real boost for health infrastructure here in Western Australia. The Mount already provides world class care and updating our facilities mean we can do that to an even higher standard. Australia’s private hospital sector is facing considerable challenges at present, providing the very best care and facilities for our patients remains our top priority. The improvements we are making with this redevelopment will mean we can provide an even better experience for our patients.'


Multi-million dollar investment to transform Mount Hospital

Media Release (23 August 2023)

Healthscope is investing more than $35 million into a staged redevelopment of the Mount Hospital (Mount).

This investment by Healthscope acknowledges the significant role that the Mount plays in not only caring for the Western Australian community but the expertise it delivers to the broader healthcare sector.

Early works have commenced for the largest stage of the redevelopment, which will see upgrades to the hospital’s existing infrastructure and clinical facilities, with the goal of improving patient experience.

“The Mount has been supporting the Western Australian community for more than 30 years. We are the leading private Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery hospital in the state,” said Mount Hospital General Manager Greg Brylski.
“I’m extremely proud to be leading this important project to further enhance our reputation and to deliver a world-class healthcare experience for our patients.
“As part of the project, it’s exciting to be installing the latest technology and facilities to support our clinical teams achieve great results,” he said.
At the beginning of August, the Mount opened its $3.3million upgraded Cardiac Catheter (Cath) Labs as part of the redevelopment.

“The Mount is one of the busiest cardiac centres in Australia. The new/upgraded labs now mean that we have access to the latest cardiac imaging equipment and technology,” said Dr Chris Judkins Director of Training and Research at Mount Hospital.
“The new technology in the Cardiac Cath Labs provides doctors better image quality at a lower radiation dose, as well as allowing for the integration of additional tools into the new system. This will allow doctors to have access to more information for decision making to ultimately improve patient outcomes.”

The Redevelopment Project includes:

  • A new waiting and reception area
  • A retail pharmacy
  • The addition of a new day surgery admission and reception area on Level 1.
  • Redevelopment of Level 2 to have 35 private rooms with ensuite and a new Clinical Support Services area.

The Mount will remain open throughout the redevelopment project. The program of works has been staged to ensure there is minimal impact to patients and families accessing the hospital.
The project is due for completion in the first half of 2024.
