Modular Solution for St. Lukes Hospital

Modscape worked closely with Calvary Health Care and Erilyan to construct additional patient rooms for their St Luke’s Hospital in Launceston, Tasmania.

The hospital chose a modular solution to enable them to quickly meet their increasing accommodation demands. Minimal time spent onsite meant less disruption to the day-to-day running of the hospital. The construction was completed in 8 weeks with the modules being installed in one day. A further 6eeks onsite and the rooms were ready for new patients. 

The five bed extension consists of four modules that connect to the existing hospital facility. Space is utilised by sitting the modules atop a ground floor services area.

Each ward room is designed for single occupancy and includes an ensuite, modern furnishings and a bulkhead air-conditioning system that enables room temperatures to be individually adjusted to patient comfort.
