St. John of God Berwick Hospital SOD Turn

STH congratulates St John of God Health Care (SJGHC) on the start of construction for the new $120 million St John of God Berwick Hospital project. STH staff members Ian Wong and Kendall Strong joined SJGHC CEO Dr Michael Stanford, Generation Healthcare REIT CEO Mr Miles Wentworth and SJGBH CEO Ms Lisa Norman for the traditional 'sod turn’ event on January 21st.

Facilities in the new hospital will include 210 beds, 8 operating theatres, a cardiac/vascular catheter laboratory, 6 birthing suites and 350 basement car parks with supporting services to include 17 Consulting Rooms, Chapel & Pastoral Care and Education & Research facilities. The hospital marks the second stage of an overall master plan for the site, which will eventually form part of a major health care precinct serving the growing Casey and Cardinia communities.

The new hospital will be jointly owned by SJGHC and Generation Health Care (GHC) but operated solely by SJGHC. Completion of the new hospital is scheduled for 2017.
