Towering new arrival on site!

The redevelopment project has reached an exciting milestone with the arrival of the tower crane that will help construct the new hospital building.

Delivered in smaller pieces and erected using a 350 tonne mobile crane, the 52-metre tower crane was installed over a weekend in late July. With the crane now operational, staff and the community will begin to see the new building take shape on the main construction site.

The first stage of works, set for completion in early 2024, will include:

  • a new hospital entrance off Goulburn Street
  • a new birthing unit
  • a new pharmacy
  • an Emergency Department expansion, and more!
