Women’s & Children’s Hospital
PROJECT PROFILE – ADELAIDE WOMEN’S AND CHILDRENS HOSPITAL
Earlier in 2020, Specialised Solutions worked with a group of local companies to design and manufacture nine temporary COVID-19 treatment units for the Adelaide Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
Premier Steven Marshall launched the project which will increase the number of children the hospital can assess and treat, while limiting potential spread of infection to patients and staff. The units are fitted with standard emergency equipment and connected to the hospital’s Emergency Extended Care Unit via an external corridor. The units were funded by the Federal Government and were built in just four weeks.
These pods have expanded the hospital’s capacity to respond to a potential new wave of COVID-19. The spaces will be activated as necessary and can also be transported to other facilities across the state.
With the completion of these treatment pods, Specialised Solutions are leading the way in the revival of South Australian design, engineering and manufacturing capabilities!
