Fiona Stanley Hospital
Located at the centre of a health, education and research precinct at Murdoch, Fiona Stanley Hospital will not only be Western Australia's flagship health facility, it will be one of the best public hospitals in Australia.
Opening in 2014, the $2 billion 783-bed hospital will be the major emergency centre servicing Perth’s southern suburbs and regional Western Australia, and will offer the most up-to-date medical technology and a full range of acute medical and surgical services.
Among its numerous services and facilities it will include a state-of-the-art emergency centre, the State burns unit, a mental health unit, WA's first comprehensive cancer services south of the river and a 140-bed State rehabilitation service.
The Fiona Stanley Hospital is the largest building of its type ever undertaken by the State and has already drawn international acclaim.
As the major tertiary hospital in the south metropolitan area, we will offer a high standard of patient care to communities south of Perth and across the State.
A leader in clinical care, research and education, our public hospital will rank among the best in Australia and will offer a comprehensive suite of clinical services.
Travel to and from Fiona Stanley Hospital will be simple for patients, staff, volunteers and visitors.
Located 15 kilometres from Perth city and nine kilometres from Fremantle, we are bordered by three major access roads – Kwinana Freeway, Murdoch Drive and South Street.
Just a short walk away is the Murdoch bus and train station, which has lifts and ramps from platforms. During peak hours, trains will arrive at Murdoch Station every five minutes, and two trains will arrive every 15 minutes during non-peak times.
Regular buses will run between Murdoch Station and our hospital for those who are unable or prefer not to walk. A bus will pass directly by our hospital every two minutes at peak times and every five minutes during non-peak times.
Our hospital is easily accessed by a network of pedestrian and cycling paths, and bike racks are provided adjacent to the east and west ground floor entries to the main hospital. Street gradients, kerbing, pedestrian ramps, street finishes and shading offer an easy and enjoyable commute to our hospital, whether travelling on foot, using a mobility device or by bicycle.
