Ambulance Victoria development program

The Victorian Government has committed $181.8 million since 2015 to the Ambulance Victoria development program.

This program aims to upgrade and rebuild ambulance stations to provide better working conditions for paramedics and ensure lifesaving emergency care is available for all Victorians.

We know that Victorians rely on the expertise, compassion and commitment of our paramedics. We also know that paramedics need modern workplaces, and the latest equipment to stay safe at work and deliver the best care.

That’s why we’re upgrading and building new ambulance stations across Victoria. Modern, advanced and well-located ambulance stations mean Victorians can receive the best lifesaving emergency care, now – and into the future.

We are upgrading and rebuilding high priority ambulance stations across Victoria and engaging in critical maintenance work to upgrade stations in urgent need of repair.

The features of each station will be designed to meet the needs of the location and the community it serves, and may include:

  • dedicated ambulance response bays
  • modern amenities
  • rest and recline rooms
  • training facilities
  • staff parking
  • reliever’s quarters for long-term paramedic accommodation
  • better security
  • better storage.

The Ambulance Victoria development program aims to achieve the following benefits:

Access to services

Upgrading and renewing high priority ambulance stations will enable our paramedics to provide lifesaving emergency care and regular ambulance services in more locations across Victoria.

Safety and wellbeing for paramedics

New and refurbished ambulance stations will mean improved safety and wellbeing for ambulance staff and paramedics, including:

  • secure car parking
  • improved medication management systems
  • increased capacity to provide support staff at single officer stations.

Sustainability

Modern designs and materials using environmentally sustainable building practices means greater climate and operational efficiency with reduced impact on the environment.

Local economy

We are partnering with local trades and businesses to upgrade and renew high priority ambulance stations across Victoria, increasing local jobs and the purchase of local materials.

This program is being delivered by the Victorian Health and Human Services Building Authority in partnership with Ambulance Victoria.
