A brand new 30-bed wing was officially opened this month at The Hollywood Clinic, almost doubling the Clinic's capacity to meet the increasing demand for mental health services in Western Australia.
Hollywood Private Hospital Chief Executive Officer Mr Peter Mott said the $6.9 million expansion has increased the number of beds to 70 and will enable the hospital to meet increasing demands for first class care.
"The Hollywood Clinic is one of the largest private mental health facilities in Western Australia and is the only stand-alone private inpatient mental health facility located on a private acute care hospital site.
"The co-location of The Hollywood Clinic alongside Hollywood Private Hospital provides important clinical benefits to the patients it cares for".
Operations Manager WA/SA and Indonesia Mr Kevin Cass-Ryall said the funds Ramsay Health Care has invested into The Hollywood Clinic shows its continued commitment to mental health into the future.
"The Hollywood Clinic was the first WA mental health facility Ramsay acquired, housing 30 mental health beds".
"Ramsay Health Care's significant investment allows us the ability to meet the current community needs while allowing senior leadership to begin planning the next expansion of the Clinic".
The Clinic will treat an additional 400 inpatients and 2,500 same day patients each year.
The $6.9 million expansion invested by Ramsay Health Care includes:
- A new 30-bed wing of single rooms with en suite bathrooms
- a new dining room with alfresco area
