About the Barwon Women’s and Children’s

The new Barwon Women’s and Children’s will provide world-class women’s health (including maternity) and paediatric facilities. It will deliver extra capacity to ensure families in Geelong and surrounding communities can continue to access the very best care, close to home.

Operated by Barwon Health, the new facilities will be built within the University Hospital Geelong precinct and will provide:

  • a children's inpatient unit
  • a new neonatal and parent care unit
  • specialist (outpatient) clinics
  • more operating theatres.

Early site demolition works started in late 2022 with the demolition of Myers House. It was on the corner of Myers and Bellerine streets.

Site planning will continue throughout 2023. This prepares the site for construction of the new Barwon Women’s and Children’s facilities.
