About the new Melton Hospital
Planning is underway for a new Melton Hospital. As part of the planning phase a business case is being developed to determine the capacity and range of services offered at the new Melton Hospital.
It will also identify how the facility will link into other hospitals in the region, including Western Health’s Footscray, Sunshine and Williamstown hospitals and Djerriwarrh Health Service’s Bacchus Marsh Regional Hospital. Western Health, one of Victoria’s largest public health service providers will operate the new 24-hour medical facility on the outskirts of Melton. Western Health delivers hospital and community-based services to more than 900,000 people across sites in Melbourne’s west.
The business case is set to be completed at the end of 2020.
