Designs for a bigger and better Ballarat Base Hospital revealed

We’ve released the final designs for the $541.6 million Ballarat Base Hospital redevelopment.

The images showcase the new multi-level tower which will house a new emergency department, a women and children’s hub, state-of-the-art theatre suite and an extra 100 inpatient and short stay beds.

The artist impressions of the new façade and interior feature earthy tones and the use of natural materials inspired by Ballarat’s landscape and rich history. These interiors will create a healing environment for patients.
