Moorabbin Hospital imaging and outpatient expansion 

Location 823-865 Centre Road, Bentleigh East, Victoria, 3165, Australia

The $16.1 million Moorabbin Hospital imaging and outpatient centre expansion was completed in October 2017.

The project upgraded cancer screening equipment and expanded the number of outpatient suites, increasing capacity for patients accessing treatment, care and support at the Monash Cancer Centre.

The expansion to the Moorabbin Hospital imaging and outpatient expansion delivered:

  • increased bed holding capacity in the medical imaging centre
  • 11 more outpatient specialist consulting suites to a total of 21
  • expanded waiting area
  • new magnetic resonance imaging machine
  • new positron emission tomography/computerised tomography (PET/CT) scanner

Over the construction period, extensive planning and staging of works meant that clinical services were able to remain operational in both the medical imaging and outpatient areas

The Moorabbin Hospital imaging and outpatient expansion aimed to provide the following benefits:

Integrated care

The expanded facilities has enabled Moorabbin Hospital to provide improved integrated cancer treatment, care and support services to Melbourne’s rapidly growing southern suburbs and beyond with increased bed capacity and outpatient specialist suites.

Improved patient flow

The expansion and new patient waiting area has reduced congestion and increased patient throughout.

New technologies

New equipment will support the diagnosis of more patients so that they can receive effective treatment earlier.

This project was delivered by the Victorian Health and Human Services Building Authority in partnership with:

  • Monash Health
  • Vincent Chrisp (architects)
  • Commercial Industrial Construction Group (builder).

Please note: As of 1 February 2021, the Victorian Health and Human Services Building Authority (VHHSBA) became the Victorian Health Building Authority (VHBA).
