Transit Lounge Development

Transit Care Hub

Princess Alexandra Hospital’s new Transit Care Hub opened in November 2014. The new space includes the Transit Lounge, Nursing Resource Unit and Patient Flow Unit.

The Transit Care Hub is a major part of our patient flow strategy, and is designed to transition patients who are ready for discharge out of ward beds so new patients can be allocated a bed as soon as possible.

The purpose built facility includes:

  • a redesigned transit lounge that is welcoming and comfortable for patients
  • improved privacy and amenity for patients and staff
  • an increase in size within the transit lounge to improve patient experience and unit functionality
  • improvements to traffic congestion at the PAH main entrance
  • a dedicated patient and visitor kitchenette while waiting for their transport
  • improved access to pick up and drop off of patients.
