Austin Health - Short Stay Observation Unit & Psychiatric Assessment and Planning Unit
Bigger, better and even more efficient – that’s what the $15.2m expansion to short stay and new mental health services means for staff and patients using the Emergency Department at Heidelberg’s Austin Hospital. With more than double the beds, the Short Stay Observation Unit provides acute care for patients who are expected to stay in the unit for less than 24 hours.
The new Psychiatric Assessment and Planning Unit provides dedicated mental health care to patients needing specialist care upon arrival in the Emergency Department. Reduced time in emergency, reduced congestion and waiting times, and even better assessment and care – that’s a big win for patients and their families.
