Exemplar Health (NBH) Partnership
New Bendigo Hospital
The new Bendigo Hospital is a state-of-the-art regional facility incorporating the latest design and technology solutions, in a tranquil and caring environment.
Currently the largest regional hospital development in Victoria, it commenced operations in late January 2017, with Stage Two poised to be completed mid-2018.
The Exemplar Health consortium is responsible for designing and building the new Bendigo Hospital and will provide facilities management services to the building for 25 years.
Exemplar Health’s balanced design response addressed Environmentally Sustainability Development solutions with pragmatic and cost effective initiatives, resilient infrastructure, significant energy efficiency in operation and ease of maintenance.
The facility has considered all aspects of sustainability such as temperature, daylight and airflow, to material selection, external views and courtyards, and energy consumption and collection.
Environmental sustainability was one of the eight components Exemplar Health used to guide the project to become a world-class facility, with the aim to provide a healthier environment within the building to patients and staff, and a healthier physical environment externally to the broader community and region.
