Royal Darwin Hospital
Darwin, Northern Territory
Redevelopment of the existing hospital Main Entrance and Emergency Department. The design concept created a consistent yet distinctive feel for the entire Hospital’s public façade, providing a welcoming and culturally relevant area with improved workflows, patient and visitor wayfinding and operational efficiency. To provide wayfinding that fit the cultural context of the region, the Pandanus tree, a Territory symbol of screening, protection, shade and nourishment was used to inform the design.
In addition, Hodgkison has designed and documented the internal extension and refurbishment of the existing Outpatients, Pre-admissions and specialist clinics area, transforming a highly utilised space into a fresh and contemporary clinical area.
Hodgkison has also been involved in the redevelopment of the Ultrasound and Nuclear Medicine departments and most recently with the design for the installation of the new PET and CT Scanner.
