Angliss Hospital expansion

Location 39 Albert Street, Upper Ferntree Gully, Victoria, 3156, Australia

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.

The Angliss Hospital expansion will deliver:

  • a new multi-storey building
  • 32 inpatient beds
  • four operating theatres
  • a new entrance
  • central sterile supply department
  • outpatient and allied health capabilities.

The project aims to achieve the following benefits:

New and modern facilities

Angliss Hospital has undergone a range of developments and expansions, including the $20 million Angliss Hospital new intensive care unit and short stay unit project that was completed in October 2018.

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. 

More surgeries

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.

This project is being delivered by the Victorian Health Building Authority in partnership with:

  • Eastern Health
  • Silver Thomas Hanley (architect).
