State Rehabilitation Service

Description: New 140 bed State Rehabilitation Service, Fiona Stanley Hospital, Murdoch

A new state wide 140 bed rehabilitation service developed as part of the Fiona Stanley Hospital precinct in Murdoch, WA. It is located adjacent to the new Fiona Stanley Tertiary Hospital, allowing access and sharing of key services provided at the hospital.

The new facility includes inpatient beds and therapy facilities as well as offering an out-patient service. It is a four storey building, including a lower ground floor, which houses a hydrotherapy pool and a motion analysis laboratory. A unique planning feature is the integration of therapy spaces with inpatient spaces. Evidence based design principles were adopted in the planning.
