Community have their say on Frankston Hospital redevelopment
A community survey report released today on the $562 million Frankston Hospital redevelopment showcases key insights into the services and community benefits that matter to the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula community.
Over 330 members of the local community participated in the survey, which was held on Engage Victoria between 18 August and 14 September 2020.
92 per cent of respondents said ‘emergency treatment’ was the most important service, followed by ‘access to specialists’ (62 per cent), ‘access to elective surgery’ (59 per cent), ‘medical imaging and other specialist services’ (56 per cent) and ‘mental health’ (51 per cent).
Other services that ranked highly were children’s health, maternity and palliative care.
Key findings also highlighted that the most important redevelopment benefits were that the hospital:
- offers a wide range of services, close to home
- offers prompt, high-quality and supportive services
- feels safe, welcoming and inclusive
- is easy to access by car and public transport
- and easy to navigate via clear wayfinding and signage.
The full results of the survey are helping inform the ongoing planning of the Frankston Hospital redevelopment.
What’s next? Help shape some of the key spaces in the redeveloped hospital
Now we are seeking input from the local community on some of the key spaces in the redevelopment from gardens and waiting areas, to how you find your way around.
How can we help to make visiting the redeveloped Frankston Hospital a safe, welcoming and inclusive experience for you and your family?
Community feedback will help to shape the ongoing planning of the redevelopment.
Understanding the priorities and needs of the local community means we can deliver a hospital for Frankston that reflects the community it serves.
Have your say by Monday 21 December 2020.
