“We are pleased to include Eastwood Private Hospital as one of the 11 major health infrastructure projects currently being undertaken by BESIX Watpac across Australia.”
In August 2023, BESIX Watpac completed construction on the new hospital wing of the St John of God Ballarat Hospital redevelopment project.
St John of God Ballarat Hospital in Victoria, Australia is undergoing a redevelopment project that involves the establishment of a new medical services building at the front of the hospital.
The project includes the creation of a new 10-bed ICU/CCU, a Central Sterile Services Department (CSSD), four operating theatres, and a 30-bed in-patient ward.
This redevelopment aims to meet the healthcare needs of the growing Ballarat and surrounding regions, providing residents with quality healthcare locally.
The project is slated for completion in the second quarter of 2024.
