Royal Hobart Hospital

TERROIR are consultants to Lyons (Melbourne) for the Redevelopment of the Royal Hobart Hospital.

The Royal Hobart Hospital is Tasmania's largest hospital and the major teaching hospital of the University of Tasmania. It provides general and specialty medical and surgical services and is the state referral centre for cardiothoracic surgery, intensive care and high-risk obstetrics.

The redevelopment of the Hospital comprises a new multi-level building that will accommodate inpatient facilities, operating theatres and interventional suites above an existing ward building on Campbell Street. It will include a women's and children's precinct, a maternity ward, delivery and birthing suites, a dedicated adolescent unit and a paediatric ward. The redevelopment will provide a new entrance and public facilities for the hospital.

The design concept creates the first stage of a masterplan which will ultimately deliver renewed hospital facilities for the campus, rather than refitting existing buildings that are unsuitable for contemporary health service delivery. The solution allows the elimination of many of the existing site problems which have resulted from the hospital's organic growth over many years.
