Nrah is bigger but still a lot of the principles are the same when it comes to building a hospital regardless of the size of the project.
Also probably about 30% of the $2.4 b spent on Nrah could have been saved if the government was more efficient.

Crane will be down on this as soon as today by the looks of things. The boom and lifting cables have been set to mid length, which will enable the end half of the boom to be removed first.

Also, a private company is under no obligation to let the public (other than shareholders) know of any stuff-ups or cost over-runs. This does not mean they don't happen. They do.

With a public building, we (taxpayers) are all shareholders, which is why these things are made public.

There was a massive cost issue with this project at the design stage but as Rhino said there wasn't the same public exposure.

The nRAH was developed privately but with public money.

Looking at the recent major pure government hospital projects in this state:
- Flinders Rehab, Older Persons Mental Health and Carpark similar budget to Calvary, delivered on time and on budget
- Lyell McEwin Hospital Stage C just under $200m, delivered on time and under budget and achieved Australia's only 6 star Green Star Healthcare building

I know you like your private is best GHS but there are some areas that it really is counter productive.

The best thing about Private Hospitals is that there is no legal boundaries between the Hospital and putting a night club in the basement.
Private Hospitals are for the Private Health Insurance Partyboys. Something Australia needs more of.

Amazing! Probably one of the better coffee shop franchises going around (if their Myer Centre store is anything to go by...)
