The new $29 million redevelopment has 24 single rooms, including one positive pressure room, four negative pressure rooms and two rooms equipped to accommodate bariatric patients.
The additional RPH ICU beds bring WA Health’s ICU capacity to 145 beds.
It will be staffed by about 250 staff members, including around 170 nurses and about 50 doctors, allied health, and support staff.
Health Minister Amber-Jade Sanderson:
“The state-of-the art facility will accommodate the sickest of our patients and will boost Western Australia’s ICU capacity during this heightened phase of the pandemic.”
