Lend Lease consortium to build Bendigo Hospital

A Lend Lease consortium has been chosen by the Victorian government to build the $630 million new Bendigo Hospital.

The Exemplar Health consortium includes Capella Capital, Siemens and Spotless.

The hospital will be built via a Public Private Partnership (PPP) with Lend Lease investing 50% of the equity alongside Siemens.

The new Bendigo Hospital will feature 372 in-patient beds, 10 operating theatres, an integrated cancer centre, a mental health unit and a helipad in addition to a mix of commercial developments.

The works include a new hospital in addition to some minor refurbishment of heritage buildings.

“We are excited to be part of the winning consortium and are looking forward to working with the Government to achieve the best result for the community in Bendigo,” said Lend Lease group chief executive officer and managing director, Steve McCann

Commencement of site works is expected to begin shortly after May 2013.
