Royal Hospital for Women Fertility Centre
Client: NSW Health – South Eastern Sydney Local Health District
Location: Randwick, NSW
Description: The objective of this project is to provide physical facilities suitable for the consulting rooms and ultrasound operations of the Fertility Research Centre (FRC). Another future project will involve the provision of facilities for an embryology lab and embryo transfer clinic. The FRC is planned to be Australia’s first holistic centre to combine basic and clinical research with comprehensive in-vitro fertilization (IFV) and assisted reproduction treatment (ART) and services for all patients, regardless of socio-economic status.
A key focus of the FRC will be to offer prompt service to preserve the fertility of oncology patients who may be rendered infertile by their treatment in the adjacent oncology services facility.
The project also includes the construction of new facilitates for the bone density clinic within the footprint of the FRC site.
