Townsville Hospital – Endoscopy & Renal Therapy Units
The project has seen the delivery of a state-of-the-art Endoscopy unit with 4x procedure rooms, dedicated decontamination facility, admission area, recovery area, as well as various other support facilities.
The new unit will enhance the THHS’s gastroenterology department and provide redundancy around capacity of treatment and future community growth.
A key component of the facility has been the delivery of an industry leading decontamination function. This area allows the unit to clean and process various endoscopes used. A key focus in delivering this function has been compliance with the stringent new AS4187 guidelines. This updated standard provides the parameters for delivery and reprocessing of reusable medical devices in health service organisations.
The completion of a new Renal Dialysis 15 bed unit is weeks away from completion. Once this has been handed over, focus will move to refurbishing the existing Renal unit.
