All levels of the new six-storey power supply and support services building at the Ballarat Base Hospital have now been constructed.

The new building will house a modern pharmacy, pathology services and an education and learning centre, along with the hospitals power, heating, cooling and backup power systems.

Work will now focus on the internal fit-out and the facade of the building, with construction set to be completed by the end of 2024.
