Virtual engagement room opens for the new Footscray Hospital
We’re excited to launch a virtual engagement room for the new Footscray Hospital, where community members are invited to ‘meet the builder’ and learn more about the design and construction of the $1.5 billion new hospital.
While we have been unable to meet in person for much of this year, visitors to the virtual room can explore interviews with the builders and experience a 3D tour of the final designs, from their comfort of their home.
The room also includes kids’ activities and an opportunity to contribute to a time capsule that will be placed on the site of the new Footscray Hospital.
With information in multiple languages, the room showcases construction milestones, design images and the community that has helped shape this once in a generation investment for Melbourne’s West. There will also be opportunities to submit questions to the project team and download further information.
The virtual engagement room will remain open into 2022 and information will be updated as the project progresses. An accessible version of the virtual room information is also available.
Construction is underway on the new Footscray Hospital at the site on the corner of Geelong and Ballarat Roads. The new hospital is set to open in 2025.
