Epworth Geelong Hospital, Geelong, VIC

Located on 10 hectares next to Deakin University’s Waurn Ponds campus, the Epworth Geelong Hospital development combines a comprehensive acute and rehabilitation private hospital with purpose-designed training and education programs for medical, nursing and allied health students and staff. The project provides innovative state-of-the-art facilities to integrate patient care, research, and medical education.

The $447 million hospital will be developed over four stages. Construction of Stage One commenced in April 2014 and opened in 2016.

Stage One delivered 262 overnight inpatient beds (medical, surgical, obstetrics and rehabilitation); 12 ICU beds; 9 operating theatres including 1 hybrid; 2 catheter laboratories; 2 procedure rooms; 20 cubicle emergency department; 8 special care nursery cots; a clinical education and simulation precinct; medical consulting suites; retail space and kitchen and service facilities.

The planning of Stage One ensured that this is a fully operational hospital, delivering comprehensive services to meet the needs of the community in the Greater Geelong, Colac-Otway, Golden Plains, Queenscliff and Surf Coast regions of Victoria. The additional three stages will progress in line with increasing patient demand and population.

“…you’ve created such a welcoming environment, such a modern environment…I’m amazed by what you’ve created.” Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, at the official opening of the Epworth Hospital, Geelong, Victoria

This project was developed by Silver Thomas Hanley in association with Kann Finch Group Melbourne.
