Located in Sydney, Australia, Liverpool Hospital Clinical Services Block 2 (CSB2) was designed by Rice Daubney. Defined by the strong linear hospital concourse circulation spine, the facility provides a major new hospital entrance to the east, redefining the circulation and organisational order of the hospital. The 45,000 sq m of specialised new clinical accommodation extends the facilities of the existing CSB and provides a total of approximately 240 new beds. The concourse ground level is used for reception and ambulatory services, including nuclear medicine and diagnostic imaging, with level 1 accommodating the ambulatory care centre providing both generic and specialised clinic spaces and a low acuity interventional suite.
The clinical hot floor is located on level 2 and includes an expanded interventional department with a total of 23 operating rooms and integrated interventional imaging department, as well as a 60 bed Intensive Care Unit, the largest in the State. Level 3 accommodates a Cardiology centre including Interventional Cardiology and associated in-patient units, whilst levels 4 and 5 provide a further 8 generic in-patient units. The hospital’s second helipad is located on level 7.
