Comfort, privacy and the latest technology: Hollywood prepares to open new gastro unit
Dec 10, 2019
Hollywood Private Hospital will open a new gastroenterology unit with four large state-of-the-art procedure rooms in March 2020.
The new unit is currently under construction and will form part of the Hollywood Consulting Centre.
A new comprehensive cancer centre, which includes two radiation oncology bunkers and a specialist oncology imaging service, is also nearing completion along with 37 new specialist suites and 280 car bays being built as part of the expansion project.
Hollywood Chief Executive Officer, Peter Mott, said the upgraded gastroenterology unit would enhance the overall patient experience.
“The unit will include a unique discharge experience modelled on an airport lounge,” Mr Mott said.
“The discharge lounge features private pods where patients can complete their recovery post-procedure.”
Mr Mott said the procedure rooms would be fitted with the latest technology to ensure the best treatment outcomes for patients.
Other major investments in technology at Hollywood in recent years include the commissioning of the da Vinci Xi surgical robot, an intra-operative CT scanner and four new 4K high definition integrated operating theatres, which opened in December 2018.
