Major regional hospital upgrade

St John of God Ballarat Stage 1 Redevelopment


Local Ballarat builder H.Troon and BESIX Watpac have teamed up to build the St John of God Hospital redevelopment in Ballarat – one of the largest private hospitals in regional Victoria. This important redevelopment will enable St John of God Health Care to continue its history of 107 years of service to the community of the Grampians Region. The redevelopment will inject a minimum of 100 new jobs into the Ballarat precinct.

Partnering to deliver excellence

Works include construction of a five-level tower including a new main entry and links to the existing hospital, 10-bed Intensive Care Unit/Critical Care Unit (ICU/CCU), four new operating theatres, 30-bed in-patient ward, and shell spaces for future wards, theatres and consulting suites. Modifications to the existing Medical Services Building will involve relocating the Central Sterile Services Department, upgrading pathology, expanding the Cardiovascular Intervention Laboratory, and one Cath Lab Shell.

"The joint venture is a perfect blend of local experience with national and global reach and we are looking forward to working with both H.Troon and BESIX Watpac to deliver the best possible outcome for the Ballarat community.”

St John of God Ballarat Hospital, Chief Executive Officer, Alex Demidov
