The Victorian Government is investing $9.42 million to expand the Westside Lodge dual diagnosis unit at Sunshine Hospital.
Operated by Western Health, the 20-bed residential rehabilitation facility offers a three month long therapeutic program for people experiencing ill mental health and/or alcohol or drug use issues who have completed a substance detox.
The expansion will deliver 10 additional beds and refurbish shared common areas. Once complete, Westside Lodge will have capacity to treat an additional 40 people each year.
Construction is expected to commence in mid-2022. During construction, the project is expected to create and sustain around 28 construction industry jobs.
The redevelopment is expected to be complete in mid-2023.
