Ambulance branches open in Mount Waverley and Dandenong

State-of-the-art ambulance branches are now open in Mount Waverley and Dandenong, giving more Victorians access to improved emergency care and providing paramedics with modern, purpose-built facilities.

A new ambulance branch for Mount Waverley

The new Mount Waverley ambulance branch on Waverley Road will improve response times and increase ambulance coverage to the people of Mount Waverley and the City of Monash.  

The new station features a four-bay garage with automated doors and training facilities. It also includes rest and recline rooms, a fully fitted kitchen, and on-site car parking to support our hard-working paramedics. 

Dandenong's revamped ambulance branch

The new Dandenong ambulance station replaces the 50-year-old former station at Stud Road. 

The spacious new branch has a five-bay drive in-and-out garage along with training facilities, rest and recline rooms, a fully-fitted kitchen and staff car parking.

The new station will be home to both Advanced Life Support (ALS) and Mobile Intensive Care Ambulance (MICA) paramedics. The shared location will mean greater skills exchange, scenario training and case debriefing.

Upgrades across the state

The new ambulance branches were delivered as part of the $181.8 million Ambulance Victoria development program. This program aims to upgrade and rebuild high priority ambulance stations across the state.
