The Transition Support Unit constructed within the Austin Hospital provides services for patients with complex mental illnesses, an intellectual disability or an acquired brain injury to improve their independent living skills.

The Unit consists of 10 patient bedrooms; complimented by lounging areas, consultation rooms, amenities, courtyards, and adequate facilities for staff and visitors.

During construction, demolition of the car park directly adjacent to the existing Austin Hospital Critical Care Unit Building was completed and a new crossover from Waterdale Road into the existing car park was constructed.
