Your Keynote Speakers

You are redeveloping the infrastructure of your health facility but on a limited budget?!

With health facility redevelopment occurring all across Australia, is it your job to:

  • Ensure your facility is sustainable for the next 40 years?
  • Guarantee innovation in the design to best fit your model of care?
  • Certify your staff is comfortable working in the new environment?

Being able to guarantee the redevelopment project satisfies stakeholder requirements is vital but at the same time very difficult. Whether you are looking at minor or major investment, it is critical that you get the planning, designing and developing strategy right the first time.

At Health Facilities Design and Development 2009 you will hear from best-in-class redevelopments totaling over $6 billion from across Australia. Below are just some of the case studies you will hear from out of the $10 billion dollars that has been set aside for the building of health infrastructure in Australia.

Sector Health Facility State Total Redevelopment Investment
Public Hospital Marjorie Jackson-Nelson SA $1.7 billion
Public Hospital Gold Coast University QLD $1.6 billion
Public Hospital Royal Women’s Hospital VIC $250 million
Private Hospital Calvary Mater Newcastle Hospital NSW $385 million
Private Hospital Pindara Private Hospital QLD $180 million
Mental Health Services Lismore Adult Mental Health Unit NSW $38 million
Aged Care Facility Dalby Nursing Home QLD $11.5 million

Only in rare instances is the luxury of a new facility afforded to you. In most cases the only option available is to somehow make the most of the existing facility. This conference will address how to do just this.

If you need strategies and guidance about how to redesign, redevelop, better plan or manage your health facility to achieve sustainable outcomes for staff and patients - this conference can deliver.
