As of 1 February 2021, we became the Victorian Health Building Authority (formerly VHHSBA), a branch of the Department of Health (DH). This website will be updated to reflect the changes to the Victorian Government.
Major works begin on the Wangaratta Hospital redevelopment
Major works on the $22.9 million Wangaratta Hospital redevelopment commenced this month, with the project on track for completion in November 2022.
The Wangaratta Hospital redevelopment comprises a mix of new building and refurbishment works and will deliver:
- a 12-bed critical care unit
- expanded emergency department with additional treatment spaces, isolation room and a behavioural assessment room
- an eight bed short stay unit
- a paediatric ward
- two refurbished 20-bed medical units
- engineering infrastructure upgrades.
The project is expected to create 60 jobs whilst construction is underway.
Once complete, the Wangaratta Hospital redevelopment will ensure patients have access to the highest quality care and services. It will improve waiting times and help meet the growing demand for services in North East Victoria.
The project is funded through the Victorian Government’s $470 million Regional Health Infrastructure Fund and is being delivered by North East Health Wangaratta in partnership with HSPC Health Architects and Zauner Construction.
The RHIF provides funding to Victoria’s rural and regional public health and residential aged care services. This funding enables health services to continue to provide safe and efficient care to local communities.
