All the scaffolding and temp fencing is being removed in angus St this weekend.
Any word on an opening date? For some reason late-June comes to mind but surely they're not ready to open with internal fit-outs etc?

No word/plans yet on what will be happening to the Wakefield hospital when Calvary move out in the coming months. Does anyone here know more? The big question is will Cromwell demo it for a big new development or just renovate it (and if so, for what?) It’s a big 8,700 sqm site...

It’s hard to imagine what else you could possibly renovate a low rise hospital into.

I’d suggest demolition, followed by a proposal for medium rise apartments is the most likely option.

It'd work for a school or university campus, but can't see any takers on the horizon. CBC's usefully adjacent, but doubt they'd need/want all the space.

I'd welcome a university or mid-rise apartments for the flow-through business affects. Hutt Street is in dire need of a lift in activity, with more vacancies now than I can ever remember. But the market for apartments seems to have dissipated, and I'd hate to see the prime location go to townhousing or some such...

ml69, just as a thought The Queen Victoria Hospital was renovated into apartments [although I doubt this would ever happen here]. I also think a lack of car parking here is a big issue here if they ever tried to re-purpose/renovate the site rather than just demo it.

I'm pretty sure the Calvary site, plus others across the eastern CBD that are owned by the hospital are all going for sale for development. It's a huge corridor that is on offer, and with some sections falling under the no prescribed height limit zone, we could see more 130m+ proposals.

This site has already been sold 18 months ago to a property trust/developer - Cromwell Property Group.

THU 14 DEC 17

Australian Unity's $1.3 billion unlisted property trust has sold an Adelaide private hospital for nearly $10 million more than its current value.

Australian Unity’s Healthcare Property Trust engaged in a transaction with Cromwell Property Group who secured the Calvary Wakefield Private Hospital and Medical Clinic for $50 million.

In November, the trust raised $250 million within three days in order to fund future development and acquisition opportunities.

Australian Unity's head of healthcare property Chris Smith said the sale price was well in excess of the property’s current book value of $40.19 million.

“Wakefield has been a strong performer for the HPT and has delivered an internal rate of return of 16.9 percent per annum for investors since its acquisition in 1999,” he said.

“We looked at a number of other uses for the property but determined that selling the property was in the best interests of investors.”

The Calvary Wakefield Private Hospital – located in Adelaide’s central business district – occupies an entire block of 8,275 square metres, with a gross building area of 15,500 square metres.

It is expected that the current tenant, Calvary Health Care, will vacate the property after their lease expires in July 2019, following the completion of their new facility.

Earlier this year the Trust entered into an unconditional agreement to acquire 150 Charlotte Street, Brisbane for $105.75 million.

“We’re very pleased that we will be able to recycle the capital from the sale of this asset to put toward our $600 million development pipeline,” Smith said.

Australian Unity is currently involved with the $1.1 billion Herston Quarter project in Brisbane, which is planning on constructing new retirement and aged care buildings, a new private hospital, new residential developments and car parking over the next 10 years.

That article says that the current lease expires next month. Given that the website still says "moving next year" without any more specific date or recent updates, I assume the lease has been extended by a few months. Does anyone know for sure when the new building might be occupied or what the process for transfer will be? Another fleet of ambulance transfers, or will a private hospital just start admitting new patients to the new site and keep the old one running until the patients have all been sent home?

Calvary hospital to get more parking and beds in redevelopment

New plans for the demolition of an 1855 North Adelaide villa and $14 million expansion of Calvary Hospital have been unveiled.

The plans, appearing on the State Commission Assessment Panel (SCAP) website, show the house now standing at 306 Ward St would be bulldozed to make way for a new building with 27 extra beds and a 112-space underground carpark.

The hospital lodged its first submission in November 2017 — which Adelaide City Council opposed — and another in October 2018, refined to include improved building elevations, frontage and landscaping.

There would also be two levels of parking, some of which staff would be able to use.

“Calvary North Adelaide Hospital has identified the need to upgrade current wards within the

hospital to provide for best practice single-bed ensuite rooms,” the SCAP report says.

“Maximising the provision of carparking on the site is a sensible response to the current lack of carparking provision for staff and visitors to the hospital.

“Maximising the provision of carparking is a beneficial outcome for the wider community as well as Calvary.”

In May last year, the council said it “vehemently” opposed the expansion of Calvary beyond its original boundaries.

That came after former SA Planning Minister John Rau had introduced rules allowing North Adelaide schools and hospitals to buy land anywhere in the suburb for development purposes.

The council is to discuss the new application at a special meeting tomorrow.

Councillors will consider making another representation to the assessment panel.

A council staff report, for discussion at the meeting, argues: “Expansion of Calvary Hospital beyond its current boundaries will diminish the residential character of North Adelaide and run the risk of the predominantly residential character of North Adelaide being eroded.”

The report says this point should be pivotal in any case put to the panel.

Lord Mayor Sandy Verschoor said today the second set of plans contained only “minor changes” from the original version.

“This was opposed by council as it saw Calvary expand beyond its original site boundaries with the demolition of an existing character home,” Ms Verschoor said.

However, the council report does support the idea of increased parking.

The threatened mid-Victorian building is not heritage-listed.

It stands on a 2460sq m block, bought by Calvary for $4 million in 2017.

At present, the site contains the five-bedroom house, with a tennis court, swimming pool and converted two-storey stables.

Calvary’s plans previously sparked outrage from residents when the demolition threat emerged.

The hospital has been contacted for comment.

Adelaide City Council has only until July 4 to lodge a case with the assessment panel.

I believe the move is happening in December or January.

They're moving in on January 7. Some interesting claims from C&G a well.
SA’s biggest private building soon to open as a $345 million hospital


The new $345 million, 344-bed Calvary Adelaide Hospital gets handed over from developers Commercial & General to the private hospital operator on Monday — and C&G chairman Jamie McClurg says they could build the planned new Women’s and Children’s Hospital on time at an affordable price.

Calvary Adelaide is the state’s largest private building at 57,000 sqm and at a cost of around $1 million per bed.

It compares with the $2.4 billion Royal Adelaide Hospital which cost more than $3 million per bed. There is speculation the new 330-bed WCH will end up costing taxpayers around $5 million a bed.


It is due to open in 2025-26 but has no final price tag yet apart from a $550 million “down payment” and there are forecasts it may cost five times as much as the Calvary build for fewer beds.

Mr McClurg says SA’s Commercial & General could deliver a premium new WCH at a competitive price, after the three-year construction of Calvary Adelaide came in on budget.

“We work efficiently,” he said. “In this case we cut the cloth correctly. We didn’t spend money on grand spaces, more on clinical outcomes."

Commercial & General’s expertise in health care construction will now move to building the $320 million SAHMRI 2.

It will house the southern hemisphere’s only proton therapy unit able to pulverise inoperable cancers without damaging healthy tissue.

Mr McClurg said the expertise developed among local workers in the Calvary project will be invaluable in the SAHMRI 2 build — and could then flow on to the new WCH project.

Opening in January, the new private hospital will consolidate the existing 170-bed Calvary Wakefield Hospital and 60-bed Calvary Rehabilitation Hospital in Walkerville, adding more than 100 beds in the process.

Mr McClurg said as a “passionate local company”, they wanted to build a hospital all South Australians can be proud of, and consulted extensively with doctors, nurses and operating staff, and brought together a team of international experts in hospital design and delivery.

“With that input, we’ve created a world-class piece of health infrastructure for the State and one that will help care for South Australians for generations,” Mr McClurg said.

“Commercial & General has invested heavily in creating a leading healthcare capability. Once finished here, our team is ready to move on to delivering SAHMRI 2.

“The new Women’s and Children’s Hospital represents the next critical piece of health infrastructure for South Australia, and it’s great to see the State Government has locked in a commitment to that project in this year’s budget.

“We believe that projects like this new Calvary Adelaide Hospital and the SAHMRI 2 project demonstrate that the expertise needed to deliver the new Women’s and Children’s Hospital — both from a clinical and facilities point of view — is right here in South Australia.”

Calvary Adelaide Hospital run by the non-for-profit Little Company of Mary Health Care Ltd on the corner of Angas and Pulteney Sts is 12 levels high with three basements levels.

The L-shaped hospital will have SA’s only private 24/7 emergency department, with two entrance streams — one for acute care patients, the other for less urgent arrivals.

On January 7, staff from the 115-year-old Calvary Wakefield Hospital will move into the premises on a 30-year lease, as will staff from the Calvary Rehabilitation Hospital.

The new hospital will account for 35 per cent of private hospital beds in Adelaide.

As well as 344 beds including 20 ICU beds, the hospital will have 66 day surgery beds, a 1500 sqm rehabilitation facility including hydrotherapy pool with views of the city and rooftop mobility garden, and 16 operating theatres.

Sitting next to the SA Police headquarters and across from the Metropolitan Fire Service, the hospital is on one of the most secure electricity grids in SA.

Design work on the greenfields site includes touches ranging from lighting which avoids people on trolleys going under an endless series of neon lights, to “air curtains’ in the operating theatres which sees fresh air gently pushed on to patients rather than mixing with outside air for added sterility.

It also mixes high tech facilities with practical “old school” touches such as whiteboards for notes in patient rooms.

The hospital will not take major trauma cases or mental health patients which generally will go to the RAH.

However, it will take some public patients when required, and Mr McClurg noted the increased bed capacity as well as a 24/7 ED with resuscitation rooms and isolation bays will ease pressure on the public system.

More than 500 workers were on site at various times during construction, and the 700 hospital staff relocating to the new site will grow to more than 1300 when the facility is fully operational.

The new hospital has 167 underground car parks accessible to visiting medical officers, tenants within the building and overnight staff. Calvary Adelaide Hospital is surrounded by several commercial car parks for visitors, patients and staff.

Volunteers will provide a concierge service for people being dropped off by family, carers or direct transport to ensure everyone receives personal support as they are assisted through the front foyer.

There is speculation the existing Calvary Wakefield Hospital will become an aged care facility under new owners, and Calvary’s other facilities including at North Adelaide and Elizabeth Vale remain fully operational.

Calvary will spend coming months finalising the outfitting of the building prior to opening for business in January.

The hospital will have all new equipment — Calvary is working with Rotary to donate suitable equipment from its Wakefield St site to hospitals overseas.
