This tour has been made available to the public to provide an insight into the size and layout of Fiona Stanley Hospital. 

However it was originally developed for internal use, to give our future staff an overview of their new workplace, so the language is directed at staff and the majority of content covers clinical work areas. The tour was filmed throughout October and November 2013, before construction of FSH was complete.  

We hope you enjoy this sneak peek inside Western Australia's flagship health facility.
