ACT Health—bed categories and operating costs (Question No 554)

Mr Hanson asked the Minister for Health, upon notice, on 19 November 2015:

What is the average capital cost of constructing one new (a) palliative care bed, (b) operating theatre room/bed/space, (c) subacute bed, (d) acute bed, (e) intensive care bed, (f) general inpatient bed, (g) emergency department bed, (h) hospital in the home bed and (i) Medihotel bed.

Mr Corbell: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

a - g) Providing a figure in relation to constructing one new (a) palliative care bed, (b) operating theatre room/bed/space, (c) subacute bed, (d) acute bed, (e) intensive care bed, (f) general inpatient bed and (g) emergency department bed, is difficult and would need to consider site specific circumstances and support spaces such as theatres, imaging, emergency, administration, ambulatory care, and other factors.

h) The average capital cost of constructing one new hospital in the home bed is difficult to assess as every circumstance is different. The cost would depend on the nature of the existing space to be converted and the level of care required.

i) The average capital cost of constructing one new Medihotel bed is difficult to assess as every circumstance is different. The cost would depend on the nature of the existing space to be converted and the level of care required. The proposed model of care would also influence the capital costs.

Mr Hanson asked the Minister for Health, upon notice, on 19 November 2015:

(1) What is the number of (a) emergency department presentations and (b) patients who presented who were sent to/admitted to an emergency department, by each triage category per annum for (i) The Canberra Hospital and (ii) Calvary Hospital.
