The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital redevelopment
The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital (Eye and Ear) is Australia’s only specialist eye and ear, nose and throat (ENT) hospital and sees nearly 220,000 patients per year, including over 40,000 emergency attendances.
The hospital is the largest public provider of ophthalmology and ENT services in Victoria and delivers more than half of Victoria’s public eye surgery – all from facilities that were built in, and for, another era.
The redevelopment of the Eye and Ear comprises a mix of new build and refurbishment of existing facilities, including the partial demolition of buildings between the two central tower blocks and construction of new connecting link bridges.
With hospital services for patients located on the lower levels, the upper levels will be used for teaching, training and research.
