Capital Expenditure

Hospitals are capital intensive, through upgrades and expansions where demand warrants. Facility development expenditure this year was equivalent to last year as we move toward the end of the current capital expenditure cycle. Major capital development projects in Victoria were at St John of God Berwick Hospital (new 190-bed hospital), St John of God Geelong Hospital (new 20-bed ICU/CCU and refurbishment), St John of God Bendigo Hospital (additional 40 beds and refurbishment) and in WA were at St John of God Murdoch and Mt Lawley Hospitals (both refurbishments).
