The Stanton Territorial Hospital Renewal Project is on track for service commencement in November and will start accepting patients late next May.
The construction phase is now 75 per cent complete, and the new hospital will be twice the size of the current one.
Some notable features of the new hospital are:
- 274 windows, with at least one in every in-patient room
- Each floor has its own colour and nature theme to represent different parts of the territory because the new hospital will be a territorial facility. This is also an attempt to be more intuitive, having colours and themes for each floor will help with wayfinding within the hospital.
- Hybrid operating room
- Space on ground floor for MRI in the future
- Wood pellet boilers, which can provide 100 per cent of building heating at 85% efficiency, will burn 1,200 tons of wood pellets a year
- 6 dialysis chairs
