Site identified for the new Melton Hospital

A preferred site for the new Melton Hospital has been selected at 245-267 Ferris Road, Cobblebank, following extensive planning with Melton City Council and the Victorian Planning Authority.

Outlined in the Toolern Precinct Structure Plan, the site is located within the future Cobblebank Metropolitan Activity Centre. The preferred location is close to the Cobblebank train station, community sports and recreation facilities, and the Western Freeway.

The Victorian Government has invested $77.4 million to deliver a business case, purchase land and progress detailed planning for the new Melton Hospital.

Planning will include how the new Melton Hospital will link with services at other public hospitals in the western region – including Sunshine Hospital and the $1.5 billion new Footscray Hospital.

The new hospital will improve access to specialists and deliver patient care for locals in the growing and diverse communities of Caroline Springs, Rockbank, Melton Central and Bacchus Marsh.

The vacant land for the proposed facility is privately owned and is in the process of being acquired.

The Melton Hospital project is being delivered by the Victorian Health Building Authority in partnership with Western Health, who will operate the new facility.
