1:30 PM How Latrobe Regional Hospital is Improving Operational Planning for their $217 Million Development through Early Identification of Stakeholder Needs

Latrobe Regional Hospital is nearly two years out of Stage 2 of the $217 Million development, with master planning and design for Stage 3 underway. To ensure sufficient capital funds for the capital works and avoid operational funds being used for fixing inherent problems in the build, effective stakeholder engagement has been imperative to improving resourcing and procurement processes. Learn how to:

  • Avoid documentation errors through transparent and regular communication with consulting engineers, architects, building surveyors and project managers
  • Overcome discrepancies in specifications with an agreed priority or schedule of documentation to minimise disruption to operations
  • Ensure fit-for-purpose spaces by planning early for medical and non-medical equipment to ensure that the models of care adequately provide the care patients need
  • Lead end user group consultations to adapt design around their experiences on the ground
