Lautoka Hospital


Lautoka Hospital is the second largest hospital in Fiji. This development involves the major expansion and renovation of existing Lautoka Hospital in three phases to have 305 beds.

Phase 1 includes a newbuild of 6 Delivery Suites and the theatre, Maternity Ward and NICU/ PICU to replace the existing maternity and IPU function.

Phase 2 includes new build for 4 Operating Rooms, 15 bed ICU/ HDU/CCU, Radiation Oncology, Day Oncology, Central sterile services department (CSSD), Inpatient wards and construction of a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) wing and cardiac catheterisation laboratory with12 bed CCU/HDU. This phase also involves renovation inside existing hospital.

Phase 3 includes the demolition of the existing patient tower which has been investigated and is found to be unable to meet the desired current seismic code and it is not viable to renovate. Preservation of the basement and make-good works will also be part of this phase. This phase also includes expansion of existing A&E inside existing hospital.

The new expansion part of this project was designed entirely through modular and prefabricated components. The phasing is carefully considered for minimum interruption of existing services.

Tuggerah Lakes Private Hospital

Tuggerah Lakes Private Hospital is a four-storey private hospital located opposite to the existing Wyong Public Hospital.

It has 20 single-bed rooms on level 2, 3 theatres with a collocated CSSD on level 1 and medical suites on the ground floor.

The hospital occupies a triangular site bounded by the Pacific Highway and a local road, the latter of which serves as the main access road into the site.

The site also slopes gently with the lowest point at the intersection of the two roads.

The project utilises the natural contour of the site to its advantage with a lower ground level of parking. The visual scale of the building was minimised by the introduction of a landscaped hill at the roadway intersection which leads to a terraced planter area at the foot of the building.

The design made efficient use of the triangular site to deliver the maximum number of bed rooms on the 2nd floor, and providing exceptional views to the surrounding landscape from each of the bed rooms.
