The Victorian Government has committed more than $900 million to deliver a new Melton Hospital by 2029.
The brand new hospital will support the growing and diverse communities of Caroline Springs, Rockbank, Melton and Bacchus Marsh. It will ensure the people of Melbourne’s west get the care they need, close to home.
The Melton Hospital will include a 24-hour emergency department, at least 274 beds, an intensive care unit, maternity and neonatal services, mental health services, radiology services and ambulatory care.
Once completed, Melton Hospital will have the capacity to treat 130,000 patients each year and see almost 60,000 patients in the emergency department.
The hospital will be Victoria’s first all-electric hospital.
Construction is expected to start in 2024 and be finished in 2029.
