TQEH and BE Switchcraft: 40 Year Anniversary

Location: Woodville Road, Woodville

The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (TQEH) has over 300 beds and provides a range of health services to the population of more than 250,000 people living in Adelaide’s western suburbs. Since opening in 1958, it has been updated and enhanced over the last 60 years.

A $200 – $250 million redevelopment project, a purpose-built clinical services building, is under construction at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (TQEH) and is expected to be complete by mid-2024.

The 5-level contemporary building spanning 27,000 square metres will allow for the relocation of services from the existing tower building at the hospital, which was built in the 1950s.

It also enables the relocation of rehabilitation services from Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre. The new general rehabilitation wards will pave the way for TQEH to be a key provider of inpatient general rehabilitation services, including stroke, amputation and burns.

BE Switchcraft has a long relationship with the Queen Elizabeth Hospital having completed over 30 projects starting back in 1982.

Almost 40 years on from our first project at TQEH and we are delighted to be supplying the LV Switchboard package for this major project in conjunction with Built Environs.
