The Austin Hospital has one of Victoria's busiest Emergency Departments. The expansion of the Short Stay Unit has increased ED's capacity to accommodate a substantial growth in treatment demand.

It has also provided the ED with more flexible working spaces which allows Austin Health to deliver contemporary, best practice models of care.

The $9 million project involved the refurbishment and expansion of the emergency department and psychiatric assessment and planning unit (PAPU).

The project consists of a 24 bed unit which is divided into a 20 bed short stay observation unit and a 4 bed psychiatric assessment and planning unit.
