The Avenue Hospital History
The Avenue hospital was owned and operated by a number of companies including Benchmark prior to being purchased by AHCL in July 1996. At this stage it had undergone three renovations; it had 5 theatres, 10 multi bed rooms, 12 two-bed rooms and 11 private rooms.
A redevelopment program commenced in October 1997 and was completed in March 2000 at the cost of $16M.
This redevelopment was undertaken in stages. These included the construction of the multi-level underground car park and the construction of the new extension which involved the completion of a 30 bed Orthopaedic unit and a 30 bed general surgery unit together with an additional operating theatre and sterilising department.
In 2017 The Avenue expanded once again with the addition of 3 new state of the art integrated operating theatres, a new dedicated day procedure & dermatology unit and expanded recovery beds.
Upgrades continue around the hospital as works refurbishing our patient rooms and general areas are underway.
In 2005 Ramsay Health Care purchased the entire Affinity Health portfolio of hospitals.
