Logan's Maternity Refurbishment takes shape

20 August 2021

It began with the demolition of Ward 2F in April and now Logan Hospital's Maternity Refurbishment project is taking shape to deliver a special space for parents, babies and our staff once complete.

Construction works have included progress on the access road which will provide direct access to maternity, which will make a real difference for women in labour and for new families going home.

The new Maternity Inpatient Unit's internal walls, floors and ceiling are nearing completion, bringing the unit another step closer to completion. Significant progress has also been made on the hospital's boundary with road widening and a new retaining wall.

The Maternity Refurbishment is being delivered in a staged approach with works on the temporary Special Care Nursery due to begin early next year once the Maternity Inpatient Unit is completed.

Two of the project’s Change Leads—Nicole Garratt and Lorin Rees—were masking their excitement on the developments last week but their jazz hands show just how excited they are! The Change Leads have been instrumental in ensuring all maternity staff are aware of ongoing project developments to support important readiness activities.
