BVN Donovan Hill-designed Royal North Shore Hospital Acute Services now open

Opened by the Premier the Honorable Barry O'Farrell MP and Minister for Health, the Honorable Jillian Skinner MP on 12 December, the new Royal North Shore Hospital Acute Services Building is the centrepiece of a $1.1bn overhaul in Sydney, Australia. Designed by BVN Donovan Hill, working for Thiess and Infrashore, the new hospital has over 5,000 rooms, with 4,000 staff and 126 Departments and is one of the most technologically advanced hospitals in New South Wales.

Ms Sue Shilbury, General Manager of RNS/Ryde Health Service noted the impact the design has had on collaboration is profound and pointed out in her opening comments that ‘it has dramatically changed the way the people interact with one another which is a direct reflection of the beautiful environment we find ourselves in’. BVN Donovan Hill Principal Abbie Galvin remarked on ‘how design has had the power in such a large project to manage the level of complexity to make significant changes to the way people work.’
