Investing in healthy futures in Gippsland's south coast
Gippsland’s south coast is growing rapidly, as more people call this area home.
Bass Coast Shire is one of Victoria’s fastest growing regional areas, with its population expected to more than double by 2031.
To meet the increasing healthcare needs of these communities, the Victorian Government is upgrading and expanding Wonthaggi Hospital.
The first stage of this expansion was completed in 2022. The $115 million investment provided upgrades including a new emergency department, new theatres and new medical imaging.
The next stage will provide a new birthing complex, a new outpatient clinic and additional beds.
