Transfer of General Rehabilitation Services from Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre to Modbury Hospital
One of the key initiatives of Transforming Health was to integrate rehabilitation services into hospital settings, allowing rehabilitation to start as soon as possible and improve patient outcomes.
Modbury Hospital has become the major rehabilitation and sub-acute services centre for the North and North East ensuring the community has access to rehabilitative care as soon as they need it. A new rehabilitation centre has been built, with a gym, hydrotherapy pool and therapy garden. Level 3 of the hospital has also been upgraded, increasing rehabilitation beds to a total of 52 and providing more support services to assist recovery.
Activity moved from the Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre to Modbury Hospital to service patients living in the North and North East will provide rehabilitation closer to home for these residents.
Transfer of staff
As part of the changes to integrate rehabilitation services into hospital settings, a number of staff will transfer from Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre to Modbury Hospital. The majority of these positions were filled by SA Health staff through an Expression of Interest (EOI).
The transfer of staff and patients from Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre to Modbury Hospital will be completed from Monday, 7 August 2017 to Friday, 11 August 2017.Back to projects
