The Angela Taylor Intensive Care Room at Royal Melbourne Hospital

Opened in December 2003, this facility, named in memory of Constable Angela Taylor, provides very specialised treatment and care for extremely critical patients within the ICU at Royal Melbourne Hospital. With its state of the art equipment, it is one of the most advanced ICU rooms in Australia and allows for better medical treatment with a minimum level of movement and disruption to the patient. The room also accommodates immediate family members and loved-ones so they can remain close to the patient and maintain a level of privacy and dignity.

Constable Angela Rose Taylor was killed in April 1986 when a car bomb exploded outside the Russell Street Police Complex. She sustained extensive burns and other injuries in the explosion and died from those injuries 24 days later. Constable Taylor was the first police women in Australia to be feloniously slain in the line of duty.
