During February 2011, 39 Vernacare Vortex Macerators were installed at the New Royal Childrens Hospital (RCH) in Parkville Melbourne. The state of the art facility, due for completion in November 2011, already has the units in readiness for patients when they start arriving at the end of the year. Max Currie, Service Manager for EBOS Healthcare, stated “The hardest part of the installation was locating all the rooms where the Vortex Macerators were to be installed. This took the installation team a day and a half just to place the units in each pan room.”The size of the New RCH is enormous. The Lower Ground level occupies the same surface area as the MCG! The old RCH will be demolished and regenerated into parkland in a process taking 1 year following the completion of the new hospital.The New RCH is the third major Hospital in the Parkville health precinct to adopt macerators as the preferred method of human waste disposal. Both the Royal Womens and Royal Melbourne Hospitals have also taken advantage of the Infection Prevention benefits alongwith the Power and Water savings to be made for years to come from the Vernacare Vortex Macerator system.
