Safe Assessment Room Being Built in Bairnsdale Emergency Department


Visitors to BRHS’ main hospital may notice some construction work happening around the Emergency Department (ED) in the coming weeks.

A Safe Assessment Room is being built in the ED, a specifically designed room for patients requiring mental health assessments in a safe and therapeutically supportive space.

Construction work will begin on March 10, and is expected to take about 5 months.

The construction will not impact the capacity of the ED.

The community is asked to be patient as BRHS staff work hard to continue to provide safe and quality care while building works are underway.
