Latrobe Regional Hospital

Tree change for expansion

Five thousand plants and more than 200 trees will help to soften the facade of the new Latrobe Regional Hospital acute and inpatient buildings.

Bairnsdale-based company, Cameron Outdoor is planting a range of native trees including flowering gums and shrubs at the Village Avenue construction site. The company began preparing the site and installing irrigation and drainage in March after completing landscaping works at the new Monash Children’s Hospital.

Cameron Outdoor senior manager Brad Montant said the LRH project was a rare opportunity to work closer to home.

“You don’t get many projects of this size in Gippsland so it’s been great for our staff to not have to travel too far,” he said.

The layout has been created by architecture firm HSPC and landscape architect Land Design Partnership. When people arrive at the new hospital building, they will be guided to the front entrance by a straight concrete pathway. It’s hoped this will reduce confusion on arrival, particularly for people who might be anxious or upset.

The designers have also identified some plant species that were indigenous to the Latrobe region and offer seasonal and sensory interest.

Cameron Outdoor is hoping to complete the project by the end of June.
