St John of God Hospital Officially Opens

On 11th March Grindley attended the official opening of the St John of God, Burwood Hospital. After a 13 month program, extensive refurbishment works and reconfiguration works have resulted in a fantastic new health facility catering to patients with specialist mental health and psychiatric care needs. The project involved the refurbishment of 37 rooms, the outdoor cafe, staff amenities, reception and chapel and clinical support areas. Additionally a brand new Parent Infant Unit was built. All areas were constructed while the hospital operated at 87% occupancy.

The Official Opening was blessed by Cardinal George Pell and attended by a number of local politicians and dignitaries.
