Virtual engagement room

The award-winning new Footscray Hospital virtual engagement room closed on 31 May 2022.

Live for six months, the room was created to give the community the opportunity to learn about the project during ongoing COVID-19 pandemic restrictions

The virtual engagement room included a 3D tour of the hospital designs, interviews with the builders and the opportunity to contribute to a time capsule that will be placed on the site of the new Footscray Hospital.

A ‘community corner’ also shone a spotlight on the community that helped shape this once in a generation investment for Melbourne’s west. For up-to-date information on the project, visit the new Footscray Hospital project page.
