The two-story demountable unit located at Monash Medical Centre has been relocated to Kingston following a successful stint as a temporary six-bay resuscitation unit during the construction of a new and refurbished Emergency Department.
The demountable unit was moved from Clayton to the Kingston Centre this week, where it will be repurposed into space for renal dialysis later this year, subject to funding approval.
The demountables were initially established adjacent to the Monash Medical Centre Emergency Department after receiving funding from the Victorian Government as part of the COVID-19 pandemic response.
The six patient bays installed in specially-designed ‘cubes’ will now be used as effective space and chairs for renal dialysis in which there is a shortage of across Monash Health, particularly at the Kingston Centre.
