Lismore Base Hospital Mental Health Unit, Lismore Nsw

Posted October 10th, 2010 by MDA Engineers

Built to accommodate both voluntary and involuntary patients the new $38 million Mental Health Unit at Lismore Base Hospital opened its doors on the 28th May, 2008.

 The Mental Health Unit will provide 40 acute in-patient beds and a specialist unit for children and adolescents hosting 8 patients. Hospital staff and the local government are hoping this facility will encourage the community to see mental health similarly to the way they view cancer or diabeties, as a serious health condition that needs to be addressed and treated in facilities like this one.

 MDA Consulting Engineers were contracted by Reed Constructions Australia to provide the mechanical, electrical, hydraulic and fire design engineering services for the project.
