Bendigo Hospital Project
Currently the largest development of its kind in Victoria, the Bendigo Hospital Project is being designed, built and operated by Exemplar Health, a consortium, comprising Capella Capital as the sponsor and financial adviser, partnered with Lendlease, Spotless and Siemens for delivery.
Made possible through a State investment of $630 million (capital expenditure) the new Bendigo Hospital will enhance the provision of health services in Victoria’s Loddon Mallee region for years to come. Community benefits include expanded hospital capacity of 372 inpatient beds, 11 new operating theatres, an integrated regional cancer centre, four radiation therapy bunkers with the capacity for a further two bunkers in the future and an 80-bed psychiatric inpatient unit.
Exemplar Health is delivering a broad range of facility management services, enabling the operator, Bendigo Health to focus on the provision of quality healthcare services to Victoria’s central and northern regional communities.With the aim to improve services and amenities for patients, staff and visitors, Exemplar Health is delivering associated commercial developments such as a multi-deck carpark, helipad, wellness centre,15 low-cost accommodation units, conference centre and supermarket. Already established as part of this project’s stage-one development, is a thriving 128-room hotel and a busy childcare centre with capacity for 100 enrolments.
The Bendigo Hospital Project opened to the public in early 2017.
