With Australia’s fastest-growing population to care for, the Victorian Government is boosting efficiencies and innovation with the establishment of the Victorian Health and Human Services Building Authority. From planning and asset services to design and delivery, the Victorian Health and Human Services Building Authority manages a portfolio of over $23 billion of health and human services assets and a multibillion-dollar program of investment in infrastructure.

With more than 2,500 buildings on 965 sites across the state, and over 100 projects currently in development, we’re engineering a fresh approach that is simple, scalable, standardised and sustainable.

In health, we’re planning and building new hospitals, aged care and mental health facilities right across the state, upgrading and renewing ambulance branches and replacing and upgrading medical equipment to world-class standards.

And, we’re also investing in more public housing, so our most vulnerable Victorians have a safe and modern place to call home.

Importantly, we’re creating vibrant places for Victorians that are embedded into the urban fabric of the towns, suburbs and cities in which we live. We’re creating places that bolster investment, create uplift and support wellbeing, ensuring Victoria continues to be one of the most liveable places in the world, now and for generations to come.
