Fiona Stanley Hospital opens
Date: 03 Oct 2014
With the opening of the State rehabilitation service today (3 October 2014) as part of the phase one opening, Serco is proud to be part of the team that has welcomed the first 100 patients to Fiona Stanley Hospital, where we deliver 26 non-clinical services.
Three years ago, Serco was selected by the WA Government to develop and set up the new public hospital in Murdoch, including the procurement of all of the hospital's equipment, design and development of non-clinical services and delivery of the complex ICT infrastructure.
Now we are delivering 26 non-clinical services at the hospital, including sterilisation, supplies management, estates, patient catering, internal logistics and reception services.
Joe Boyle, Serco's Transition Director at Fiona Stanley Hospital, said: "We were challenged to make the hospital Australia's best - with the most advanced ICT infrastructure, world leading technologies, leading clinical and non-clinical equipment and outstanding non-clinical services.
"At Serco, we have delivered numerous benefits to the new Fiona Stanley Hospital, including a single-point-of-contact Helpdesk, freshly cooked meals, modern microfibre cleaning methods, patient entertainment systems at every bedside, an Australian first air glide system in our sterilisation department, automated guided vehicles to deliver meals, linen and supplies, and the first managed equipment service in Australia.
"We have implemented the very best of technology, equipment and people through our work at Fiona Stanley Hospital, all to benefit the health of the community in Western Australia.
"We know that the clinical services delivered by WA Health will be exceptional. What will set this hospital apart will be the environment in which patients are cared for, much of which has been created by our outstanding team. We are proud to be part of the team with WA Health at Fiona Stanley Hospital."
