The new Medical Imaging Department offers life-changing equipment that will improve the services available at the hospital. Patients will benefit from nuclear medicine enhancements with the latest SPECT CT, which can diagnose seizures and strokes, an MRI (a new service to the hospital), a new orthopantogram (OPG) which allows for dental x-rays, as well as a fluoroscopy unit which is used widely for stroke patients to review speech and swallowing.
Other improvements to the department include two new CTs, four general x-rays, two ultrasound machines and three new mobile x-rays.
APP was appointed to project manage Stage 2 of the redevelopment of Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital in 2017 and acted as the Principal Authorised Person for the Stage 2 early works packages. This included the delivery of the new $19.8M multi-storey car park, which has been operational to staff and visitors since December 2018.
Funded by the State Government, the new Medical Imaging Department is part of a larger redevelopment that will include an expanded emergency department as well as a new multi-storey Clinical Services Building.
The Stage 2 Redevelopment of Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital is due for completion in 2021.
