And Hollywood has further plans for expansion already having received council approval for its master plan, which includes developments up to six storeys high in some parts of the 10-hectare Nedlands campus. Mr Mott said the 73-year-old hospital’s original layout of one-storey buildings gave it more space overall and the opportunity to build upwards. “Unlike many hospitals we’re not landlocked or land constrained,” he said. “We’re very, very optimistic that we will be looking for further growth on this campus.” Pictured L-R: Operations Executive Manager - WA & SA Hospitals, Ramsay Health Care, Kevin Cass-Ryall, CEO Hollywood, Peter Mott, Mrs Anne Leach, Florence Nightingale Medal (FNM), Order of Australia (OAM) Hon Dr Kim Hames MLA Deputy Premier; Minister for Health; Tourism; State RSL President, Graham Edwards, Chairman Ramsay Health Care, Michael Siddle, Chief Executive Officer Ramsay Australia, Danny Sims The Ramsay Way 2015 | 04 3 DEVELOPMENTS Hollywood gets bigger and better Ramsay Health Care has recently invested over $70 million in major infrastructure developments at Hollywood Private Hospital including a new wing housing six state-of-the-art operating theatres and three new 30-bed wards.
