Locals help shape the Latrobe Regional Hospital expansion

We’ve been gathering feedback from the local Gippsland community to help shape the design of the $217 million expansion of Latrobe Regional Hospital. 

Last month, an online survey sought community input on aspects of the design of the hospital's new family spaces, children's play areas and outdoor spaces. An online webinar was also hosted by Latrobe Regional Hospital to provide information and answer questions about the project. 

We received valuable input from the community about creating a family-friendly design focused on health and well-being. From the feedback, we heard that people want to see: 

  • more greenery and plants  
  • patient and family lounges
  • comfortable outdoor seating areas 
  • artwork created by local Gippsland artists. 

The feedback will be used by our project team, partners and Latrobe Regional Hospital to shape the detailed design of the hospital expansion. These designs are expected to be released in late 2020, with construction expected to start in 2021.
