Upgraded Latrobe Regional Hospital opens its doors
The $73 million redevelopment of Latrobe Regional Hospital is now open to patients, with the new cardiac catheterisation lab to open shortly and a $2.6m special care nursery and maternity ward due to be completed early next year.
The project features a new emergency department, doubling the previous capacity, with Allscripts to roll out its Sunrise ED system later this year.
Allscripts won a contract last year to roll out its EMR and community health solution for the Gippsland Health Alliance, beginning with the 289-bed LRH.
The hospital also has a new 12-bed short stay unit, 60-bed acute inpatient ward, two endoscopy rooms and new main entrance and drop-off area.
