Designs released for Sunbury Community Hospital

We’ve released the designs for the new Sunbury Community Hospital, revealing the facility’s exterior, main reception and waiting area, and treatment spaces.

The designs have been carefully considered to create a safe and comfortable environment for patients, families and staff.

Community members, Western Health, and other key groups helped shape the look and feel of this vital facility through the project’s community consultative committee.

The need for clear signage and wayfinding, use of natural materials and light to create a welcoming environment, and protection of patient privacy were some of the community’s priorities included in the designs.

Clinical and staff spaces have been designed with input from user groups and Western Health to ensure they are functional safe spaces for both staff and patients.

About the Sunbury Community Hospital

The Sunbury Community Hospital will be an expansion of the current Sunbury Day Hospital located at 7 Macedon Street, Sunbury.

The facility will help take pressure off nearby major hospitals, including Sunshine Hospital and the Northern Hospital in Epping. 

When expansion and upgrade works are complete, the hospital’s capacity will enable a greater range of public urgent care services to be delivered on-site after hours. These will be supported by diagnostic services including medical imaging and pathology services, pharmacy, and a separate reception and waiting area.

These additional services will sit alongside the existing day surgery, chemotherapy and dialysis services available on site.

Construction on the new community hospital is underway, and due to be completed in 2023.
