Construction will begin next year, creating more than 1,400 construction jobs.The upgraded hospital includes a multi-level tower with a new emergency department, a women and children’s hub, state-of-the-art theatre suite and an extra 100 inpatient and short-stay beds.There will also be a new and expanded critical care floor with an intensive care unit, operating theatres, procedure rooms, endoscopy suites and consulting rooms – delivering capacity for an additional 4,000 surgeries every year.Once complete, the hospital will have capacity to treat at least 18,000 more emergency patients and an extra 14,500 inpatients each year.Ballarat Health Services is one of the region’s largest employers and this redevelopment is expected to create up to 1,000 extra positions once fully operational. The project is expected to be completed by 2027.Former Premier and Ballarat local Steve Bracks will Chair a Community Consultative Committee, alongside Member for Wendouree Juliana Addison and Member for Buninyong Michaela Settle.The Government is calling on locals from Ballarat and surrounding areas to help shape the redevelopment by joining the Community Consultative Committee or completing an online community survey on Engage Victoria. Committee members will be appointed through an open Expression of Interest which can be found on the Victorian Health and Human Services Building Authority website: vhhsba.vic.gov.au/ballarat-base-hospital.As stated by Minister for Health Martin Foley“We’re putting regional patients first and upgrading our major regional hospitals across the state so more patients can be treated sooner, closer to home.” As stated by Member for Wendouree Juliana Addison“Ballarat Health Services’ nurses, doctors, allied health, caterers and orderlies do an incredible job caring for the community and this upgrade will give them the modern facilities they need to do what they do best – saving lives.”As stated by Member for Buninyong Michaela Settle“The Ballarat region is growing, and this redevelopment is about meeting that increased demand and making sure the community has access to the services they need, while creating thousands of local jobs.” /Public Release.

It took three days to do it, but Coach Dave D’Avignon and his North Adams Lady Devils got their third win in five outings for the 2015 campaign as they knocked off the Fairfield Lady Lions by a final score of 5-1. The game, played at North Adams High School, actually began on Sept. 2 but was suspended six minutes in by dangerous lightning in the Seaman area with North Adams up 1-0 and completed on Sept 4 when the Lady Devils completed their Southern Hills Athletic Conference triumph.It was the dynamic North Adams offensive duo of Cati Butler and Lakyn Hupp who did the scoring damage in the victory, with Butler getting the hat trick and Hupp adding the other two scores. Butler got the scoring underway on the game’s first night, on a goal that involved an assist for Lady Devils’ goalie Madee Shipley. Grabbing the ball on her end, Shipley punted the ball past the midway line on the field where after one big bounce, Butler headed the ball forward, controlled it on the dribble, and then booted it into the goal for the 1-0 advantage.“I’ve been coaching high school soccer for over 30 years and I’ve never seen an assist by a goalie before,” said Coach D’Avignon. “Madee laid out an incredible punt and the Fairfield defense just watched it sail over their heads.”Play was then suspended because of the inclement weather and the two sides picked back up on Friday afternoon and Butkler picked back up where she left off. scoring again at the 26:19 mark of the first half, taking a centering pass from Abby Shupert and knocking it home to make it 2-0.The Lady Lions got on the board 15 minutes later on what Coach D’Avignon described as an “own goal,” as his defense misplayed a ball deep in their zone and it was deflected into the goal to make it 2-1 North Adams at the intermission.Ten minutes into the second half, Butler completed her hat trick. On a counter attack, junior Jordyn Kell passed the ball ahead to Butler who launched a long range missile from nearly 40 yards down field that entered the goal just under the crossbar and over the outstretched arms of the Fairfield goalie.“This just have been a game for long kicks,” said Coach d’Avignon. “I think Butler’s third goal started somewhere on the other side of US 32!”Leading now by two goals, the Lady Devils stretched that margin to three when Kell crossed the ball from the right side to Hupp who was in perfect position on the left side for the score that made it 4-1. Just three minutes later, Hupp struck again, this time on an assist from Butler and the home team had a comfortable four goal lead which they held all the way to the finish in the SHAC win.“We tweaked the lineup a little bit tonight with Taylor Hesler, Bailey Schirtzinger, and Brooklyn Wylie starting in new spots and everyone came through,” added the North Adams head coach. “It was a total team effort, a well-played game.” PreviousJunior Fair holds 52nd BBQNextWINCHESTER HAPPENINGS Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterThis Weird Method Can Restore Your Vision Naturally (Watch)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
