New Footscray Hospital - Community information session 4 - evening

This event has been held. For further information about the proposed development please visit the new Footscray Hospital project page.  

The current Footscray Hospital was built in the 1950s and is a major tertiary and teaching hospital, providing elective and complex surgery to Melbourne’s inner west. Despite minor expansions and refurbishments since 2009, the ability of Footscray Hospital to continue to service western Melbourne, and the inner west, is becoming increasingly challenging.

The Victorian Government announced it will invest up to $1.5 billion to build a new Footscray Hospital. This investment will transform the inner west and provide world-class healthcare to the region.

The hospital will be built at 89 Ballarat Road, opposite Victoria University’s Footscray Park campus (corner of Geelong and Ballarat Roads).

The community information session provides an opportunity to find out what this project means for you, for your health care and for the community.

Please drop-in at any point during the session time. A brief presentation by Project Director, Tina Skliros, will be held at the start and then repeated half-way through each session. Representatives from the New Footscray Hospital Project Team and Western Health will be on hand to answer any questions that you may have. 

Help us ensure the event is properly catered for by registering your interest in attending.
