Designs released for Bendigo Hospital Rehabilitation Centre
Central Victorians will soon have the world-class facilities they need to support their health and physical wellbeing close to home, with designs unveiled for a new day rehabilitation facility at Bendigo Hospital.
The $59.5 million investment will construct a new hydrotherapy pool and bring together outpatient rehabilitation, allied health, dental, mental health, renal dialysis, breast screening and diabetes education services.
This means 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 in one convenient place. Co-location of services supports a holistic and patient-centred approach to rehabilitation and care.
The designs reveal the exterior, grounds, hydrotherapy pool and internal fit-outs. They aim to create a welcoming, safe and healing atmosphere for patients, their carers, and families
