Preferred bidder named for Frankston Hospital redevelopment

The bigger, better Frankston Hospital for families in Melbourne’s south-east is a step closer – with a preferred bidder named.

The Exemplar Health consortium has been announced as the preferred bidder to enter into an exclusive negotiation with the Victorian Government to deliver the $605 million Frankston Hospital redevelopment.

The preferred consortium includes:

  • Capella Capital as sponsor and investor
  • Aware Super as investor
  • Lendlease Building Contractors as builder
  • Honeywell Limited and Compass Group Healthcare Hospitality Services as facilities and maintenance managers.

The redevelopment is being delivered as a public private partnership. This involves bringing together a private consortium to design, construct, finance and maintain the new facility for a period of 25 years.

Frankston Hospital will remain a public hospital, with all clinical healthcare services operated by Peninsula Health. Construction is expected to start in the first half of 2022 – with the redevelopment creating up to 1,700 jobs at the peak of construction and in new opportunities for the healthcare sector.
