THE two cream brick towers at the Anne Caudle Centre site have been standing since the 1950s and 1970s respectively.
Their futures are unlikely to be decided before Victorians go to the polls in November, with both the premier and the health minister looking to future budgets for further works related to the Bendigo Hospital Project.
“Every hospital across the state is always in constant conversation with the government about the next stage,” Premier Daniel Andrews said while in Bendigo this morning.
“It’s a constant process of investment and backing those staff to do even better."
There are still some services remaining in the towers, such as a hydrotherapy pool, public dental services, and administration services.
Other services, such as inpatient rehabilitation, have been moved to the new Bendigo Hospital.
Health Minister Jill Hennessy said the government was ‘incredibly proud’ of the work that had been done, and was being done, at Bendigo Health.
“We’ll always be looking at future capital projects both here in Bendigo and across the state,” she said.
