Works to start on cardiac service expansion at Hollywood Private Hospital
Jul 08, 2022
Works on a new angiography suite at Hollywood Private Hospital are expected to start this month.
The new suite will feature a 15-bed day surgery unit with an entry, holding bays and a waiting area.
The redevelopment represents a major expansion of Hollywood’s cardiac services, with the number of cardiac procedure rooms increasing from three to four.
Cooper and Oxley are the project builders and the new suite is expected to be completed by mid-2023.
Deputy Director Clinical Services, Patricia Whalley, said the new angiography suite had been designed for enhanced patient experience.
“Day patients in the angiography suite will be able to stay from admission to discharge,” Ms Whalley said.
“Patients will benefit from cardiac specialists and state-of-the-art equipment all in one convenient location.”
The angiography expansion follows the opening of a new cardiothoracic theatre in 2020.
Director of Medical Services John Maxwell said Hollywood is investing in the latest technology to attract the best specialists in the field.
Hollywood now offers comprehensive cardiac services, with the opening of a $67 million emergency department (ED) in November.
“Patients who present to the ED with cardiac issues, will have access to extensive cardiac services,” Dr Maxwell said.
“Hollywood is the only hospital in the southern hemisphere offering Hybrid Catheter Ablation and Surgical Ablation (HyCASA), treatment for patients with long standing atrial fibrillation.”
The angiography suite expansion continues Hollywood’s rapid growth to help meet the health needs of West Australians now and well into the future.
