AIS FRONT ENTRANCE & RECEPTION RENOVATION

St. Vincent's Mental Health apologises for the inconvenience to people accessing our mental health building over the next few months.  The renovations have commenced and our usual walkway will be closed for approximately 16 weeks due to the major building works.  Access to our building for all staff, patients, consumers, carers and visitors will be at the rear entrance, off Alma Street.  

The renovations will improve the entry to the ward, (making the entrance more welcoming): improve safety for consumers, visitors and staff; as well as improve and expand workspaces within ground floor

Regular updates will be provided, click documents below.
