Frankston Hospital redevelopment
Families in Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula will be able to access world-class healthcare close to home.
A re-elected Andrews Labor Government will deliver a massive redevelopment of Frankston Hospital.
It will create more than 1,000 new jobs and give local families the world-class hospital they deserve for the very best care.
The Frankston Hospital redevelopment will see the hospital transformed with 120 new hospital beds, two new operating theatres and 13 new emergency department beds.
It will deliver a massive expansion of child and maternal health services to meet growing demand as more young families move to Melbourne’s south-eastern suburbs – including a new maternity ward, obstetrics ward, women’s clinic, paediatric ward and special care nursery.
People with mental health conditions will be able to get the help they need with more mental health beds and two levels of the 11-storey hospital redevelopment to be devoted entirely to mental health services.
There will also be more support for people battling cancer, with a new oncology ward and an oncology day clinic.
Work will start in 2020 and be finished in 2024.
