Audiology

Overview:  A re-location of Audiology Unit from Level 2 of Clinical Services Building to the Ground Floor of the Main Block of Wakari Hospital. This is due to be completed in early 2017.

 

 

October 2016 Progress Report: Work has begun on the new Audiology Unit at Wakari Hospital.

The new space will provide a warm welcoming environment for patients of all ages to feel valued while being tested or receiving treatment.

The waiting room will be open and light with plenty of seating, a children’s play area and a strategically placed reception, positioned to ensure people arriving at the clinic are efficiently received, while also creating a link to the business end of the facility.

On the operational side of the new Audiology unit, there will be three new acoustically designed testing booths, two smaller units and one larger room which has a control room to the side for more specialised testing. Every design aspect of these rooms has been considered to not only meet, but exceed the required standard to ensure there is no margin for error during a very important process.

The finishes to the modern facility have been selected with care to make both working in and visiting the new Audiology department as comfortable as possible.
