Established in 1956, Box Hill Hospital is the largest of our acute hospitals admitting more than 48,000 patients each year.
We provide a wide range of healthcare services including: emergency care, general and specialist medicine, intensive care, mental health services for children, adolescents and adults, maternity services, post-acute care programs, surgery, teaching and research.
We are a university teaching hospital affiliated with Monash, La Trobe and Deakin Universities.
The need for a hospital in Box Hill was identified by the local community in the late 1930s with construction undertaken from 1949 to 1956 as a consequence of local fundraising and strong community involvement. Like many community hospitals, as demand for its services grew, additional wings and extensions were added including a maternity block, a larger emergency department and a mental health facility. In the late 1980s, Box Hill Hospital was transformed from a community hospital to a major regional teaching hospital affiliated with Monash University.
The $447.5 million redeveloped Box Hill Hospital will become the major referral centre for people living in the eastern region of Melbourne. The new ten-storey building, which has taken just under three years to complete, is a contemporary, technologically advanced healthcare facility, designed to accommodate future growth in Melbourne’s east. The building, to be known as Building A, was officially opened by the Victorian Premier, the Hon Dr Denis Napthine, and the Minister for Health and Ageing, the Hon David Davis on 12 August 2014. The first patients moved into the new facility on 30 September 2014.
Bunjil the Eagle, the 2.8 metre tall wooden sculpture in the new foyer of Building A, was designed by Aboriginal artist Glenn Romanis. Bunjil the Eagle is a spiritual leader in Aboriginal culture and is of great significance to the Wurundjeri people. Bunjil's presence in the foyer signals to Aboriginal patients, visitors and staff that they are welcome and will be treated with respect at Box Hill Hospital
Emergency Department Aboriginal artwork
Three pieces of Aboriginal artwork in Emergency were commissioned by Aboriginal artist Mandy Nicholson. The leaf has been adapted from the hospital's original crest and the background ochre colours depict the connection to Country. The swirls within the leaf depict the smoke emanated from the leaf during a Welcoming Ceremony. The smoke is represented by the circles surrounding the leaf and the oil which the young manna gum leaves release into the air.

Locating these artworks in the emergency department's waiting area reinforces Eastern Health's commitment to 'Closing the Health Gap'
The feature wall mural in the Adolescent Lounge, Paediatrics (Ward 5.3) has been designed by Box Hill High School arts student Sumudu Aranayake from Ringwood
The box leaf motif is a common design element used throughout the building, particularly on walls, stair walls and floors, to assist as a wayfinding cue or landmark
The motif symbolises the box leaf depicted in the original Box Hill Hospital & District crest, thus acknowledging the hospital's proud past and recognising its exciting future
