They came, they saw, they loved it! About 600

people attended our Open Day on Saturday 19

March to see the new Clinical Services Building

at Blacktown Hospital.

Our community loved the fresh, spacious new

wards, the carer zones and the welcoming

feeling, commenting that it “doesn’t feel like a

hospital at all”.

Thank you to all our wonderful staff and

volunteers who did the meet and greet,

directed people around the hospital, wrangled

balloons, handed out free water and apples,

worked the tour route and were generally

fabulous!

We couldn’t have done it without you!

Visitor comment: “Nice, airy, bright, wide, roomy”

Respiratory ward; CE Danny and project officer Matthew take it all in from

above; Luke has things well in hand; Security officers Nal and Sadru had the

unfortunate duty of escorting a gentlemen out of the building for wardrobe

crimes. He was allowed to return to the event after removing the offensive

Hawaiian shirt but counselling has been recommended for his recidivism after

he was spotted in the garish item again later in the day. If you see him, please

approach with caution (or cautionary fashion advice).

Visitor comment: “Needed in the local

area for employment and services.”

HEEDING THE CALL:

Our Call of Home

glass sculpture and

mirror pool proved

irresistible to

visitors on Open

Day.

Visitor comment:

“Wonderful. Love

everything. Can’t

believe we have this

in Blacktown.”

SPREADING OUR WINGS: We’re used to construction cranes so it was delightful to have a different kind of crane visit us on

Saturday. Origami master Yoshimi Lawler made paper peace cranes and lotuses with visitors and volunteers on Open Day. The

paper sculptures will form part of a new artwork for our hospital.

MADE IN BLACKTOWN: One of the highlights of Open Day was welcoming our community representatives back to Blacktown

to see the work they created. More than 500 people contributed to the design of the mosaic seat that has become such a

feature of hospital street. Back row: mosaic artist Malcolm Cooke; community rep Adid Alrubi; Hikmat Odesh from SydWest

Multicultural Health Services; a community representative; HARC coordinator Marily Cintra. Front row from left: Zubaida Alrubi,

Barbara Kenny from WASH House Mount Druitt; Gathering Place artist Robyn Caughlan; a community rep; Ahlam Odesh; and

Geodhini Sivaraj, Family Support Coordinator SydWest Multicultural Services.

OPERATION ART: Bringing life to the hospital and the hospital to life, our artists are

an integral part of what makes all our new facilities so special. From top left: Call of

Home artist Leanne Tobin; Sydney Sonata Singers performing; Salamak bringing

world music to Open Day; Gathering Place artist Robyn Caughlan pictured with her

work Peace and Harmony, a terrazzo floor encircled by the mosaic seat.

IT IS YOUR DESTINY (TO GO FOR FUN): It wouldn’t have been the same without a

visit from our friends at the 501st Legion Southern Cross Garrison. Above, a

Stormtrooper gets day leave from the Death Star to Go For Fun.

Right, could our clinical services building architects Vanessa and Chin be getting

some tips for Death Star supremo Lord Vader? Good thing they ignored Darth’s

advice that black is new black (except for Hospital Street). Our architects Jacobs

(formers SKM-S2F) have just been shortlisted for a Dulux Australia colour award

for the new building.

Right, Sharon gives directions to

Kamino. Or should that be Tatooine?

Or Jakku? Depends which generation

you are! Thank you to our local

Empire contacts Admiral Clive and

General Sandra, and their Bad Guys

Doing Good team Brenden, Darrell

and Matthew.
