Demolition of the Edward Wilson and Eildon House buildings in Drummond Street will commence in April
As part of Stage 1 works of the $541.6 million Ballarat Base Hospital Redevelopment, demolition of the Edward Wilson and Eildon House buildings in Drummond Street will commence in April.
The demolition of these buildings will pave the way for construction of a new building to house a state-of-the-art pharmacy, pathology and centre for education and training.
The buildings most recently were used as administration and consulting rooms. These services have been relocated to new, purpose-designed spaces in the redeveloped hospital.
Grampians Health has notified surrounding residents and businesses that demolition works will be getting underway and has provided further information about the process and potential impacts.
The demolition of these buildings is expected to be completed in June 2022 by local builder H. Troon.
Working in partnership with the Victorian Health Building Authority, Grampians Health is looking forward to delivering a new emergency department, a women and children’s hub, state-of-the-art theatre suite, expanded ICU, endoscopy suites and consulting rooms and an extra 100 inpatient and short stay beds.
Once completed, the upgraded hospital will have the capacity to treat at least 18,000 more emergency patients and an extra 14,500 inpatients per year.
