Hopewood Park gets ready for opening


The opening of Hopewood Park hospital in Ryhope is expected to take place in early September.  Around 800 people attended the Hopewood Park open days and feedback suggests a very positive first impression of the new hospital.

Once fully open the hospital will include six wards, each with 18 individual en-suite rooms for urgent care assessment and treatment.

It also features a psychiatric intensive care unit and Section 136 Suite.  Hopewood Park will also provide services for patients with complex on-going needs and that require rehabilitation services.

The hospital offers a new central facilities building called The Barton Centre featuring a range of services including a café, Mental Health Act tribunal offices, a faith centre, a physical treatment suite, pharmacy, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and exercise therapy.
