Kane Constructions was awarded the $95 million Lump Sum contract to deliver the Northern Hospital Inpatient Expansion - Stage 2 project in the third quarter of 2019.

With the demand for quality healthcare continuing to rise in Melbourne’s fast-growing northern growth corridor, the Northern Hospital is undergoing a major rebuilding and refurbishment project.

Stage 2 will increase the tower from three to seven floors, providing space for improved facilities and extra room to meet future needs.

Among the features of the new development will be:

  • Three 32-bed wards accommodating 96 acute in-patient beds
  • Three new operating theatres including one hybrid theatre
  • New theatre recovery spaces
  • Expansion of cardiology services, cath labs and medical imaging
  • A Critical Care Unit with provision for development of a cardiac precinct
  • A fitted out ground floor with kitchen, café hub, offices, transit lounge, emergency control room, morgue and communications rooms
  • New electrical and lift infrastructure
  • Future provision for a helipad
  • A new Central Sterile Supply Unit, equipment loan centre, bio-medical engineering, loading dock and other back office functions.

All works are being carried out in a fully operational hospital environment with construction works due to finish in 2021.
