Calvary Mater Newcastle public hospital in Waratah, NSW, is the major cancer care centre for the Hunter New England Local Health District, delivering more than 320,000 occasions of outpatient services and in excess of 16,000 inpatient treatments per year.

Current challenges in Australian pathology laboratories include congestion due to space restrictions and dynamic changes to facilitate technologies including automation and robotics.

The Westlab projects team worked with the pathology management team and NSW health pathology to phase install 3 laboratories at the Calvary Mater Newcastle Hospital. The project consisted of workflow assessment, demolition and replacement of all laboratory benching systems. Our biggest challenge and success with this project was the phase installation. Westlab were able to deliver the full system whilst working around a fully functional 15 man pathology team and this was achieved though exceptional project management and coordination with management, research staff and installation teams.

Within seven weeks of Calvary mater placing the order, Westlab designed, measured , manufactured and installed three fully functional pathology laboratories.
