This is project was funded by the Federal Government as a part of a new initiative to upgrade Medical Education in the Private Hospital Sector. We became the broker between the two very different cultures of University and Ramsay Healthcare. Our solution to the complexity of inserting the project in an operating Hospital was to carry out a range of small projects around the campus, improving the space utilization and gaining additional functionality for both groups.
This has lead to a high degree of excitement on the part of both groups and great interest from the federal government on this integrated model of medical learning facilities. The project has become a learning and conference centre for the Medical School and all levels of the Hospital. It has become the informal and formal learning heart of the campus with multi use collaborative learning areas, high tech real time operating theatre presentations and video conferencing.
