39 Albert Street,
Upper Ferntree Gully,
The Victorian Government is investing $112 million to expand the Angliss Hospital in Upper Ferntree Gully.
A new multi-storey building will deliver a new inpatient unit, four operating theatres, a new central sterile supply department, and spaces for outpatient services.
The expansion will transform services at the hospital, ensuring the Knox and Yarra Ranges communities can access world-class healthcare facilities close to home.
Site preparation works are expected to commence in late 2022. Construction of the new multi-storey building is expected to commence in late 2023. During construction, the project is expected to create and sustain approximately 330 construction industry jobs.
The expansion is expected to be complete in 2025.
Architectural firm Silver Thomas Hanley has been appointed to design the $112 million expansion.
The latest expansion will upgrade hospital infrastructure, providing new and modern facilities for patients and staff.
Meet growing and changing needs
The region served by Eastern Health is projected to grow to over 1.1 million people by 2036, with one in five being 65 years of age or older. Increased capacity at the Angliss Hospital will help to meet the current and projected demand for health care services in Melbourne’s outer east.
The expansion of Angliss Hospital will increase and improve capacity for more surgeries, as well as provide additional inpatient and outpatient capacity. It will greatly increase the hospital’s ability to deliver overnight and same-day surgical and outpatient care.
New construction jobs
At the peak of construction, the expansion is expected to create and sustain approximately 330 construction industry jobs.
