Brisbane’s Mater Hospital refurbishment project has been complete. The $3 million project involved making the interior of the reception and waiting area and all wards on levels 8-10 including nurse’s stations, corridors and patient lounges of the hospital into a hotel-like space.
“The intent for the refurbishment was for a more hotel-like feel and for patients and visitors to enjoy being in a light, bright, modern building,” said Don Murray, executive director of Mater Private Hospital Brisbane.
“Over the years the Mater has rebuilt all the hospitals on its campus and has adopted a more contemporary design rationale. As part of the planned upgrade of the Mater Private Hospital, it was felt it was time for this hospital to also adopt a more modern aesthetic.”
The hospital engaged interior specialists Formula Interiors to undertake the refurbishment. Formula Interiors CEO Gary McDonell said his project team were delighted with the outcome, especially as they reached completion ahead of time while still delivering a high standard of construction.
“Mater Health Services has trusted Formula Interiors with a major hospital refurbishment and I must say it’s a great feeling to have once again successfully delivered positive outcomes for a valued client,” he said.
Mcdonell said Mater Hospital employees were also “thrilled” with their upgraded environment and the new staff stations.
