Latrobe Regional Hospital's New Emergency Department Is Now Open

Much needed, larger than existing unit

Latrobe Regional Hospital's New Emergency Department Is Now Open

After 2 years of work, the Latrobe Regional Hospital has officially opened up its new Emergency Department to the public.

The new Emergency Department, worth $79 million, is about two and a half times bigger than the existing facility and will have 29 new care points as well as a new fast track room and a 12 bed short stay unit.

Latrobe Regional Hospital CEO Amanda Cameron told Hit FM News this morning the upgrades are much needed. "It's been about 6 or 7 years in the making and we're very excited and pleased with the way the opening went".
