The QEIIMC Trust has completed works on a welcoming new Piazza for Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital (SCGH). The Piazza provides short-term parking bays close to the Adults’ Emergency Department and the busy outpatient areas of the hospital. The new area was opened on 4 June 2019 and replaces the now demolished F Block, which was originally built in 1975 as the Institute of Radiotherapy. F Block continued to serve as the SCGH radiotherapy facility until 2013 when the Comprehensive Cancer Centre was completed.
The landscaping the Piazza is pedestrian focused and features a forecourt connecting E and G Blocks of SCGH. New pedestrian and driver wayfinding has been installed to ease traffic congestion on Hospital Avenue, the primary traffic thoroughfare of the campus.
