Collie Hospital’s Modern Operating Theater Unveiled

Hunt Architects have handed over their latest healthcare project, in collaboration with Collie Health Services, and the Department of Finance. The new operating theatre within Collie Hospital showcases practical planning, inventive design, and a shared dedication to enhancing healthcare infrastructure in Western Australia. The project has garnered media attention from the likes of the Southern Western Times, WA Country Health & the Western Australian Government.

The new operating theatre is a testament to modern medical advancements and the evolving needs of patient care. It reflects the dedication of Collie Health Services, which invested $14.7 million in hospital upgrades, with support from the Department of Finance. The scope included new operating theatre complex and site wide critical infrastructure upgrades.

At Hunt Architects’ we pride ourselves on having extensive healthcare experience and expertise. Our team are highly knowledgeable in this sector, working on other note worthy projects such as the Royal Perth Hospital ICU, Fremantle Hospital and Bethesda Hospital. The project required Hunt Architects to design a functional and efficient space that aligns with the demands of modern medicine. The collaboration between architects and medical professionals has resulted in a facility that will shape the future of healthcare delivery in the Collie region.


The Collie Hospital Operating Theatre is now open to the public as of mid 2023.


“It’s been a rewarding experience working on Collie Hospital’s new operating theatre. Collaborating with Collie Health Services and the Department of Finance, we’ve brought practical design to life. Seeing our architectural work contribute to better patient care and the community has been truly fulfilling.”
