Wangaratta Hospital redevelopment

Location 35-47 Green Street, Wangaratta, Victoria, 3677, Australia

The Victorian Government has invested $22.9 million to redevelop the Wangaratta Hospital.

Funded via the Regional Health Infrastructure Fund, the expansion will help meet the growing demand for services in North East Victoria.

The $470 million Regional Health Infrastructure Fund is the largest grant program of its kind in Victorian history. It provides vital government funding to rural and regional public health and residential aged care services across Victoria. This funding enables these services to continue to provide safe and efficient care to local communities.

The Wangaratta Hospital redevelopment comprises a mix of new building and refurbishment works and will deliver:

  • a new 12-bed critical care unit
  • expanded emergency department with additional treatment spaces, isolation room and a behavioural assessment room
  • a new eight bed short stay unit
  • new paediatric ward
  • two refurbished 20-bed medical units
  • engineering infrastructure upgrades.

The Wangaratta Hospital redevelopment aims to achieve the following benefits:

More services to meet growing demand

The redevelopment will increase the level and quality of services, improve wait times and support the increasing demand for services in the region.

Treating more patients closer to home

The expanded emergency department, which includes additional treatment spaces, will also provide more urgent care for communities closer to home.

Improved accessibility

Relocating the existing paediatric and women’s care units into a new location will also provide improved accessibility.

Local jobs

The redevelopment will create approximately 60 jobs whilst the project is in construction, providing employment opportunities for local tradespeople and businesses.

Funding for this project was administered by the Victorian Health Building Authority through the Regional Health Infrastructure Fund.

This project is being delivered by Northeast Health Wangaratta in partnership with:

  • HSPC Health Architects
  • Zauner Construction (local builder).
