Local Public Hospital


A public hospital in Newcastle, NSW, is one of the major care centres within the Hunter New England Local Health District, delivering more than 340,000 occasions of outpatient services and in excess of 17,000 inpatient treatments per year.

This hospital required more space for their growing on-site patient records storage area by culling years of inactive patient records.

  • Long on-site turn around for retrieval requests
  • Hospital information management team was wasting valuable time trying to find medical records in unknown storage locations

Our on-site project team provided the Customer daily lists to allow for tracking of the catalogued files and cartons were collected daily whilst being able to be retrieved for next day delivery if required.
