Description

In September 2018, the Victorian Government made a commitment to redevelop the Frankston Hospital with a proposed investment of $562 million. Built as a community hospital in 1941, the hospital has undergone periodic development over time. The new investment seeks to redevelop and expand the hospital, with a major new inpatient service tower linking into the existing Frankston Hospital.

The Frankston Hospital redevelopment and expansion will provide a huge boost for the region and transform services, delivering: 

  • a new acute services tower providing the hospital with a new main entrance to support enhanced wayfinding;
  • capacity for 120 additional inpatient beds;
  • two new operating theatres;
  • thirteen enhanced emergency department beds;
  • expanded women’s and children’s health services, including maternity, women’s and paediatric clinics and services;
  • improved oncology facilities; and
  • enhanced mental health services.

The infrastructure works will address the current, and increasing, shortfalls in bed capacity and improve the ability to meet contemporary standards for optimal care for the communities of Frankston and Mornington Peninsula.

The Project will be delivered as an availability public private partnership under the Partnerships Victoria framework. Procurement commenced in September 2020 with the release of an Invitation for Expressions of Interest. Request for Proposals are expected to be issued to shortlisted bidders in early-mid 2021.

Preliminary site works at Frankston Hospital, including geotechnical investigations, were completed in July 2020. Construction of the new tower is expected to be completed in late 2024.
