Frankston Hospital redevelopment

Location 2 Hastings Road, Frankston, Victoria, 3199, Australia

Planning is underway for the $562 million Frankston Hospital redevelopment.

This project will transform services by delivering additional beds, more operating theatres and better, integrated mental health services for the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula community.   

The Frankston Hospital redevelopment will also deliver expanded maternity and paediatric services. By consolidating emergency department short stay beds, as well as improved oncology and orthopaedic services, the redevelopment aims to support Frankston Hospital to provide exceptional care to an ageing and growing local community for generations to come. 

The Frankston Hospital redevelopment will provide a consolidation of services into a new multi-level tower development. It will bring together services dispersed across the campus and expand service capability. 

The project will deliver: 

  • a services tower, providing the hospital with a new main entrance
  • capacity for additional beds including consolidation of medical and surgical wards into a single zone, facilitating multidisciplinary care
  • additional operating theatres
  • new short stay emergency department beds
  • expanded women’s and children’s health services, including maternity, women’s and paediatric services
  • improved oncology facilities
  • the relocation of mental health services. 

The Frankston Hospital redevelopment aims to achieve the following benefits:

Patient and staff safety and experience 

The co-location of clinical services will improve service efficiency, ensuring patient safety and an improved experience for patients, families and employees.   

Patient wellbeing

Modern facilities, amenities and equipment will support the delivery of enhanced care and patient wellbeing.  

Local access

Increased service capacity will provide more access for people living locally, improve wait times and enable patients to access more support services closer to home. 

This project is being delivered by the Victorian Health and Human Services Building Authority in partnership with Peninsula Health.
