POSTPONED: New Footscray Hospital community information session 2 – meet the builder

*Postponement of community information session*

We’re sorry to advise that the New Footscray Hospital Project’s ‘meet the builder’ community information session, scheduled to take place this Saturday 29 May 2021, has been postponed. This is due to the reintroduction of some Coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions, announced by the Victorian Government on 25 May.

The health and safety of our community is our key priority, and the sessions will be rescheduled when it is safe to do so. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Kind regards

The New Footscray Hospital Project Team

Build your own hospital!

The Victorian Government has provided up to $1.5 billion to deliver a new Footscray Hospital – the largest ever health infrastructure investment in the State.

Located on the corner of Geelong and Ballarat Roads, the new Footscray Hospital will support the increasing demand from Melbourne’s booming western suburbs, ensuring families can get the care they need close to home.

Building a bigger and better Footscray Hospital will cut wait times and reduce pressure on nearby hospitals. With an increase of nearly 200 beds, the new hospital will treat approximately 15,000 additional patients and enable around 20,000 additional people to be seen by the emergency department each year.

Construction of the new Footscray Hospital is now underway, with the hospital expected to open in 2025.
