∞ Broadmeadows Hospital is one of five health services in the Northern Health portfolio of healthcare sites. An ‘Integrated Centre’, Broadmeadows offers a variety of health services to the extended local community including aged care, rehabilitation, palliative care, day procedures, renal dialysis and metal health facilities.
The Hospital underwent a significant $17.3 million upgrade in 2017 to transform its Elective Surgical Centre. Nuvo was successfully selected by Cockram Construction from a select tender list as the preferred contractor for the early works and the $2.9 million Electrical, Technology and Data works required. Nuvo’s extensive credentials and track record in operational hospital environments were vital in being awarded the packages.

∞ The project delivered expansion of the Central Sterile Service Department and storage facilities, a makeover of patient reception and new recovery facilities, relocation of existing endoscopy suite, expansion of the pharmacy, radiology and pathology collection services and the construction of four new cutting edge and larger operating theatres, taking the total number of full-size theatres on site to six.
The project team worked tirelessly to successfully deliver on project objectives within an extremely tight timeframe resulting in a smooth transition to the new facilities and no loss of income for the client.
With works occurring within a fully operational hospital, Nuvo Group implemented successful strategies to insure minimal impact on hospital activities. A high attention to detail in the planning of Critical Shutdowns of the main switchboard by Nuvo’s project team ensured all Critical Services were maintained without interruption for up to 24 hours, resulting in minimum disruption to staff and patients and smooth operation of the hospital for the duration.
The expansion of the Broadmeadows Elective Surgery Centre and the increase in surgical capacity within the current building will assist in more residents of the north to receive elective surgery locally, and in a timely manner.
