Catheterisation Laboratory

Project Managers:

Value: 
$10m
Completion Year: 
2017
Category: 
Healthcare
Challenge: 

Cardiac catheterisation laboratories – known as ‘cath labs’ – are used for lifesaving heart procedures such as stenting, angiography, inserting pacemakers and implantable defibrillators.

The new cath lab will boost access to world class cardiac surgery and care, closer to home, for patients in Ballarat and across Western Victoria.

A second cath lab in Ballarat, plus additional recovery space, will significantly increase capacity, meaning more people with cardiovascular disease can get the care they need sooner and enjoy better health outcomes.

 

Outcome: 

More patients will be able access urgent heart assessments and procedures in Ballarat instead of travelling to Melbourne or Geelong, saving families money from expensive travel and accommodation costs.
