New Footscray Hospital wins international award

The new Footscray Hospital project has won gold in the Best Healthcare Project category in the 2022 Partnership Awards.

Held in London, the Partnerships Awards recognise and celebrate excellence in the industry of Public Private Partnership (PPP) projects.

This year, the awards reflected on the outstanding efforts made by organisations and individuals that went above and beyond in response to the challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The expert judging panel was made up of over 30 industry professionals from both the public and private sectors. The panel members were selected based on their expertise, experience and integrity in the PPP market.

The Victorian Health Building Authority’s Director for Public Private Partnership projects, Tina Skliros, was also named a finalist in the Leading Woman in Infrastructure category. This award recognises inspirational individuals who are highly successful in their career and a leading voice in the industry.

This is the third award the New Footscray Hospital Project has picked up this year.

The project won the Government Partnerships Excellence award at the National Infrastructure Awards and a GOV Design Awards 2022 for its virtual engagement room.
