Latrobe Regional Hospital Expansion - Stage 3A

Location 10 Village Avenue, Traralgon, Victoria, 3844, Australia

The Victorian Government has invested $217 million to deliver the next stage of the Latrobe Regional Hospital Expansion.

This stage will expand the maternity unit and deliver three new operating theatres, 44 new beds and 14 new medical and surgical beds. This means more people can get the care they need, closer to home.

There will also be six new intensive care unit beds and an extra emergency department bay.

The expansion will help to meet the region's increasing and complex health demands. It is part of our master plan for delivering improved health services throughout the Gippsland region.

Stages 1 and 2 are complete and involved the delivery of a bigger emergency department and new cardiac facilities.

For more information on stage 1 and 2, please see the Latrobe Regional Hospital - Stage 2 project page. 

The expansion will provide better and faster services to patients, as well as making it more attractive for healthcare professionals to work, and remain, in Gippsland.

Scheduled for completion in late 2023, the next stage of the Latrobe Regional Hospital expansion will deliver: 

  • 44 new inpatient beds
  • three new operating theatres
  • 14 new medical and surgical beds
  • six new intensive care unit beds
  • new central sterile services department (CSSD)  
  • additional emergency department bay
  • 227 new car parking spaces.

It will expand the maternity unit by adding:

  • six new maternity beds
  • two new birthing suites
  • two new special care nursery cots
  • kids' play area.

Latrobe Regional Hospital expansion – Stage 3A aims to achieve the following benefits:

Increased capacity

This stage of the expansion will allow for an extra 6,200 more elective surgeries per year. This means that people will get the procedures they need – faster.

More support for mums

The new birthing suites, maternity beds and special care cots means that more mothers will be able to give birth closer to home. 

More employment

The project is expected to create 600 construction jobs and will help to attract and retain the best health professionals in Gippsland.

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

  • Latrobe Regional Hospital 
  • Billard Leece Partnership (architect).
