The $650M Bendigo Hospital Project is the largest regional hospital development in Victoria. It will deliver a world-class regional hospital incorporating the latest design and technology solutions, in a tranquil and caring environment.
The overall project includes 80,000m2 of floor area, consisting of 2,800 rooms, 550 new beds, 11 operating theatres, an integrated cancer centre, a parent-infant unit, a childcare centre, wellness centre, hotel, conference centre, multi-deck carpark, helipad, pedestrian link bridge over Arnold Street, retail shops and cafés.
The Exemplar Health consortium has been engaged by the State to design, build, finance and maintain the new Bendigo Hospital. ACE’s client, Lendlease, is part of the consortium and is responsible for project management, design and construction of the hospital. It is also a provider of equity for the project.
The new hospital buildings and gardens will provide the local community with a new meeting place and it is the intention of all the project partners that the completed site becomes a place people feel comfortable visiting and enjoying whenever they want to, not just when they have a clinical need.
