Kane Constructions was appointed in mid-2018 to deliver Barwon Health North under a Construct Only contract.
The Barwon Health North facility provides a state-of-the-art flexible medical facility to meet the growing needs of the community.
The development offers an innovative, integrated, community based, ambulatory care service model and provides for a range of patient cohorts.
Services at Barwon Health include a hybrid of specialist care, women’s and children’s health clinics, and treatment for non-emergency illnesses and injuries. These include renal dialysis, after hours care, such as GP and urgent care services, as well as specialist outpatient services and clinical support services, including medical imaging, pathology and pharmacy.
Barwon Health North has an urgent care centre that will reduce demand on the emergency department at University Hospital Geelong. Barwon Health North includes medical imaging facilities, including x-ray facilities and a CT scanner, a pathology centre with collection and analysis rooms and a pharmacy.
This project reached Practical Completion in mid-2019, with services commencing by late 2019/early 2020.
