Builder announced for Birchip Campus redevelopment

The $9.5 million redevelopment of East Wimmera Health Service’s Birchip Campus is on track, with a builder now appointed.

Ballarat-based firm Nicholson Construction will deliver the new redevelopment. Construction began in August 2020 with completion expected in December 2021.

The redevelopment will combine acute and aged care services under one roof. A new aged care building will provide 12 aged care beds and three acute inpatient beds.

The existing hospital building will also be refurbished to create new administrative, consulting and back-of-house areas.

The Birchip Campus aged care and hospital redevelopment will ensure residents have access to the highest quality care and services. It will particularly cater to people with complex needs.

The project is partly funded via the Victorian Government’s $350 million Regional Health Infrastructure Fund. This provides vital government funding to rural and regional public health and residential aged care services across Victoria. This funding enables these services to continue to provide safe and efficient care to local communities.
