About the Frankston Hospital redevelopment

The Frankston Hospital redevelopment will deliver a new 12-storey clinical services tower and main entrance, 130 more beds, new spaces for mental health and oncology services, enhanced women’s and children’s services and 15 new operating theatres.

Once completed, the bigger and better hospital will have the capacity to treat approximately 35,000 more patient episodes each year – cutting wait times and reducing pressure on other Melbourne hospitals.
