The modifications to the Royal Adelaide Hospital Emergency Department triage and waiting room are now complete, with the space opened to consumers on Friday 20 October 2023.
The works began in July and enhance visibility across the waiting room, improve flow into the department and support the implementation of a rapid investigation and treatment zone.
The ED modifications were co-designed with key stakeholders, including ED staff and SAAS. The Central Adelaide Local Health Network listened to its clinicians, investing $2.2 million to make these changes to support their work.
The temporary triage buildings will be dismantled and removed over the next three weeks. Once completed, 21 short-term car parks will be returned to use by the public.
We thank consumers and clinicians for their patient during the construction period.
