Geelong’s new Epworth Hospital

The Epworth Geelong Hospital is about to open in Waurn Ponds next to Deakin University in July and we were lucky enough to have a tour of the incredible $272 million dollar facility that is more like a luxury hotel than a hospital. The tour included not only the areas the public would normally see but we were lucky enough to even visit the operating theatre and some of the x-ray and scanning rooms. Every patient room has a spectacular view and features the latest in comfort and technology. The first patients will use the hospital from the 4th of July the full facility opening in stages over the next few months.
