Latrobe Regional Hospital is subject to expansion as designs for the $217m redevelopment are in finalisation.
In July an online survey was available for the public to cast their views on stage 3A developments, asking locals for opinion and what they wanted to see designed.
The current new design of the hospital includes a focus to create a welcoming and calm atmosphere with dedicated spaces for patients’ healing.
The hospital will include 44 new inpatient beds, three new operating theatres, 14 new surgical recovery beds, six new intensive care unit beds, an additional emergency department bay and a maternity unit.
Responses collated from the online survey will be considered to finalise designs in late 2020.
Construction of Latrobe Regional Hospital is estimated for early 2021 with works aimed to conclude by 2023.
Builders expected to tender for the hospital redevelopment include Multiplex, Icon, Kane, Watpac and Lendlease.
Recently we reported that ADCO, Kane and Watpac would tender for the $115m Wonthaggi Hospital expansion.
Multiplex built the original Latrobe Regional Hospital in 1991 and more recently has built Werribee Mercy Hospital, Epworth Geelong teaching hospital and the Peter Doherty Institute.
Icon has developed Stage 2A of Latrobe Regional Hospital which took 22 months and valued at $60 m in redevelopments. Icon built room for a 64-bed 2 level Inpatient Unit, a new 2 level ACUTE Building and general service upgrades.
