Bendigo Hospital Day Rehabilitation Centre

Location Lucan Street, Bendigo, Victoria, 3550, Australia

The Victorian Government is investing nearly $60 million to construct the Bendigo Hospital Day Rehabilitation Centre.

The new centre will consolidate rehabilitation services into one new location and provide a holistic approach to deliver patient-centred care.

Construction will begin in 2021 and is expected to be completed by 2023. The project aims to create 180 construction jobs for the local regional community.

The Bendigo Hospital Day Rehabilitation Centre will consolidate rehabilitation services into one convenient location, providing a holistic approach. The new centre will provide the following allied health services:

  • physiotherapy
  • occupational therapy
  • social work
  • speech therapy
  • prosthetics 
  • orthotics
  • clinical psychology
  • neuropsychology
  • a new hydrotherapy pool.

The project will also see the demolition of the old East and North Wing tower buildings, which will be returned to green open space.

The Bendigo Hospital Day Rehabilitation Centre project aims to achieve the following benefits:

Specialist allied health

Day rehabilitation services play a vital role in providing high quality therapies to help patients maximise their independence and give them the support they need to continue living at home.

Easier to access services

The project aims to make services easier to access and better connected for patients, providing seamless care and improved health outcomes.

A more holistic approach

Medical professionals can work closer together so that patients can receive a more holistic approach as they recover from accidents, injuries and medical conditions, such as stroke or heart attack.

Better use of campus facilities

Bendigo Health will be better able to utilise campus facilities, resulting in more efficient operations.

Green open space

Demolition of the old East and North Wing tower buildings will create new green open space for the community.

This project is being delivered by the Victorian Health and Human Services Building Authority in partnership with Bendigo Health.
