Broadmeadows surgery patient boost

13 November 2017

The growing number of patients in Melbourne’s northern suburbs will get the elective surgery they need faster with the completion of the Victorian Government’s state-of-the-art expansion of Broadmeadows Hospital. The $17.3 million redevelopment includes a first-class, bigger elective surgery centre. The Broadmeadows Hospital redevelopment has doubled the service’s number of operating theatres.

It features two new larger theatres, taking the total number of full-size theatres to four, giving Northern Health the capacity to perform more than 2,500 extra procedures every year. Other upgrades include the relocation of the existing endoscopy suite, expansion of the central sterile service department and storage facilities, a makeover of the patient reception and recovery facilities and expansion of the pharmacy, radiology and pathology collection services.

‘This world-class revamp of Broadmeadows Hospital will see more patients in Melbourne’s north get the safe and high-quality surgery they need,’ said Minister for Health Jill Hennessy. "More families are moving into Melbourne’s north every day," said Parliamentary Secretary for Medical Research Frank McGuire.
