A $1 million refurbishment of an existing area at the Mater Hospital’s Pimlico campus to build a private emergency department is on track and due for completion in late September.

The emergency department, located in North Sydney, Australia, will allow patients a direct pathway to the Mater Hospital. On-call specialists including in the fields of cardiology and cardiac surgery, orthopedics, pediatrics, general surgery, general medicine, plastic surgery, urology, vascular surgery, obstetrics and gynecology and ophthalmology will be available.

The facility will include two resuscitation bays and seven treatment bays, and will operate from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. seven days a week.
