Fiona Stanley Hospital

The largest single infrastructure project undertaken by the WA State Government, Fiona Stanley Hospital includes:

  • Western Australia’s major centres for the treatment of trauma, burns, and heart and lung transplants
  • 643 beds, 83% of which will be single rooms with individual ensuites, promoting principles of infection control and patient privacy
  • 16 overnight stay wards, 16 theatres, and tertiary medical and surgical services
  • Cutting edge radiology services including MRI, CT and PET/CT as well as pathology, biomedical engineering and cell manufacturing facilities
  • The most advanced medical equipment, including a state of the art medical imaging centre coupled with advanced information and communication technologies throughout the hospital
  • A comprehensive cancer centre, including 4 linear accelerators
  • State Rehabilitation Centre

Fiona Stanley Hospital is designed with the key guiding principles of providing patient centric care, future proofing facilities, grouping clinical services into functional clusters, and separating planned and emergency patient flows. The facility is designed to attract and retain a highly motivated and skilled workforce.

Fiona Stanley Hospital incorporates significant Evidence Based Design initiatives:

  • Single rooms which help reduce the incidence of infection and afford patients privacy and dignity;
  • Clinical hand basins in every room to reduce infection risk;
  • Rooms which have been designed to reduce falls. For example the proximity of the bed to the en-suite is made so that patients can use the wall to guide their progress, rather than having to cross a big floor area unaided;
  • Natural light which offers psychological comfort and has been scientifically proven to improve patient outcomes and contribute to the healing process. At FSH the move to maximise natural light has been adopted across all technical spaces including wards, ICU and ambulatory care;
  • Straightforward way-finding to reduce the confusion and stress of people visiting the hospital;
  • Separation of patient spaces and public spaces to help maintain patient dignity, and Co-location of like-for-like ambulatory and clinical services which centres patient care adjacent to appropriate treatment and consulting spaces
  • ESD initiatives, designed to achieve 5 star GBCA Healthcare Building rating
  • Designed “no boundary” departments and generic/standardised rooms – allowing flexing up and down depending on demand/need.
  • Clear separation of flows – patient and services
  • Rainwater capture and re-use by built roof and hard stand areas

This project was designed by the Fiona Stanley Hospital Design Collaboration made up of Silver Thomas Hanley, Hassell and Hames Sharley.
