3:00 PM Meeting the Needs of Nurses: How the $630 Million Bendigo Hospital’s Intelligent Design Improves Staff Communication, Productivity and Experiences in a Regional Setting

With almost 2,000 nurses of 4,000 staff at Bendigo Hospital, it’s important for the infrastructure team to understand nurses’ needs to ensure a practical hospital layout that supports safe and effective communication, productivity and experiences. Learn how Bendigo Health is leveraging its physical and ICT infrastructure to:

  • Pre-empt capacity at the design phase while being flexible in redesigning and repurposing spaces to accommodate for unanticipated growth, which is inevitable
  • Design a hospital for wellness with a purposeful design that has noise proofing and day lit spaces to promote recovery and comfort
  • Incorporate contemporary technology and digital tools into design to address the gap in communication technologies and create a more attractive and accessible environment
