Ballarat residents can now help design some of the key family spaces in the $541.6 million redevelopment of the Ballarat Base Hospital.

Tuesday 5 October 2021

The Victorian Government is calling on the community to take part in the survey and contribute to some of the indoor and outdoor areas of the redevelopment including waiting rooms and gardens.

The survey allows participants to choose which landscaping style they think would work well in the redeveloped Ballarat Base Hospital, what they would like to see in the main entrance and what would make people feel more comfortable in waiting areas. The survey is open until October 25 and is available here 

The redevelopment will deliver a new emergency department, a women and children’s hub, state-of-the-art theatre suite and an extra 100 inpatient and short stay beds.

A new and expanded critical care floor will bring together operating theatres, procedure rooms, the intensive care unit, endoscopy suites and consulting rooms – delivering capacity for an additional 4,000 surgeries every year.

Once completed, the upgraded hospital will have the capacity to treat at least 18,000 more emergency patients and an extra 14,500 inpatients.

The redevelopment will be completed over multiple stages, with construction of the final stage expected to be completed in 2027.
