Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Ballarat Base Hospital is a hospital located in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. It is a public hospital operated by Ballarat Health Services. Ballarat Health Services employs approximately 3000 staff at the Base Hospital, the nearby Queen Elizabeth Centre, and 13 off-site facilities in the surrounding area. During the gold rush of the 1850s the Government Camp provided medical support but mainly for officers and not for miners and the general community. Those wounded at the Eureka Stockade in 1854 received varying attention and the need for a hospital became apparent. A year later building of a hospital commenced. The five storey Henry Bolte wing, designed by architects Bates Smart was completed in 1994. Styled in postmodern design to blend with the city's heritage buildings it has become a landmark in Ballarat, however many consider the building ugly and bulky.
