HYDROTHERAPY POOL

The Bendigo Hospital Day Rehabilitation Centre project will construct a new hydrotherapy pool and consolidate rehabilitation services into one convenient location. The new centre will provide the following services:

  • outpatient rehabilitation
  • allied health
  • dental
  • mental health
  • renal dialysis
  • breast screenings
  • diabetes education.

The project will also demolish Bendigo Hospital’s ageing East and North Wing tower buildings, built in 1958 and 1972 respectively. The area will be converted to open green space for patients, visitors and staff to enjoy.

The Bendigo Hospital Day Rehabilitation Centre project aims to achieve the following benefits:

Specialist allied health

Day rehabilitation services play a vital role in providing high quality therapies to help patients maximise their independence and give them the support they need to continue living at home.

Easier to access services

Patients recovering from accidents, injuries and medical conditions such as a stroke or heart attack, will be able to access a team of health professionals all conveniently located in one place. Co-location of services also enables a holistic and patient-centred approach to rehabilitation and care.

Better use of campus facilities

Bendigo Health will be better able to utilise campus facilities, resulting in more efficient operations.

Green open space

Demolition of the old East and North Wing tower buildings will create new green open space for the community.

Jobs for Victorians

At the peak of construction, the project will create approximately 180 jobs providing a boost for the local economy as the state continues its post-pandemic recovery.

This project is being delivered by the Victorian Health Building Authority in partnership with:

  • Bendigo Health
  • Clarke Hopkins Clarke (architect)
  • Alchemy Construct (early works contractor).
