The new rehabilitation ward at John Flynn Private Hospital consisted primarily of the fitout of an existing shell floor as a new 19 bed ward.
While the basic principle for the design of the ward layout was following two previously completed rehabilitation ward levels, the project provided the opportunity for to further develop the detailed design for bedrooms, ensuites and the staff base areas. Some changes were also required to further improve the existing rehabilitation gymnasium.
A challenge for the design of the ward was the limited floor-to-floor height in the existing building. This meant a clever use of ceiling bulkheads and a high level of services coordination was required throughout.
