Wonthaggi Hospital expansion

Location 235 Graham St, Wonthaggi, Victoria, 3995, Australia

The $115 million Wonthaggi Hospital expansion project was completed in November 2022.

The expansion delivered three new operating theatres plus a procedure room. A new emergency department with 18 extra treatment spaces was added, along with a 32-bed inpatient ward. These new facilities will enable staff to treat 26,000 more emergency patients every year.

Bass Coast Shire is one of Victoria’s fastest-growing regions, with its population expected to more than double by 2031. A bigger and better Wonthaggi Hospital will ensure more Bass Coast locals can access world-class healthcare closer to home and loved ones.

The Wonthaggi Hospital expansion project included:

  • three new operating theatres
  • one new procedure room
  • a new emergency department and short stay with 18 additional treatment spaces
  • 32 new inpatient beds
  • car parking.

The Wonthaggi Hospital expansion project aims to achieve the following benefits:

More capacity

The hospital has capacity to treat an extra 26,000 emergency patients each year.

Access to elective surgery, closer to home

The expansion project has delivered three new theatres and a procedure room, doubling the hospital's current capacity and enabling more procedures to be performed. This additional capacity also reduces the number of patient transfers to other hospitals, allowing patients to stay closer to home – and their families. 

Improve quality of patient care

The expansion provides new and refurbished facilities. Access to the facility is improved, with fully compliant access for those with a disability.

Local jobs

The redevelopment created and sustained around 345 local jobs during the peak of construction.

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

  • Bass Coast Health
  • Lyons (architect)
  • TS Constructions (early works builder)
  • Kane Constructions (main works builder).
