Angliss Hospital expansion

Eastern Health has welcomed the start of a fresh new chapter for Angliss Hospital, with works commencing on a $20 million expansion of the hospital.

Funded by the State Government, the project will include a range of features, including the construction of a fourth level above the main hospital building which will house critical care services.

Like all Eastern Health capital projects, the Angliss Hospital expansion is guided by Eastern Health’s Clinical Service Plan. This is a long term plan to ensure Eastern Health is able to meet the needs of the local community now and into the future.

This project will focus on critical care and short-stay facilities, with the construction of a fourth level above the main hospital building that would contain a 14-bed critical care unit.

Overall, the hospital expansion will deliver an increase of 20 beds, along with significant improvements to the overall clinical environment.

There will also be improvements to our paediatric facilities, with the number of short-stay beds for our youngest patients set to increase.

By delivering this boost to the hospital’s critical care capacity, it will also reduce the number of patient transfers that occur from Angliss Hospital to Maroondah Hospital and Box Hill Hospital each year.

The hospital expansion is due to be completed in 2018.

Why is this project important?

The Angliss Hospital expansion will deliver significant improvements to our clinical environment, ensuring Eastern Health can continue to meet the needs of its community.

Highlights of the expansion include the construction of a fourth level above the main hospital building which will increase the capacity of the hospital’s critical care services.

The project will deliver a new Intensive Care Unit. It will also include an expanded short stay unit for the hospital that will provide care for patients who require a stay of up to 24 hours.

In addition, the paediatric emergency and short stay area will also be refurbished, with the number of existing paediatric short stay beds set to double.

A refurbishment of the hospital’s courtyard will also be completed.

When will the hospital expansion be completed?

The complete project, including the new ICU, opened in October 2018.

What will the project mean for healthcare in the region?

The hospital expansion will provide a welcome boost to healthcare in Melbourne’s outer east.

It will play an important role in ensuring Eastern Health can continue to meet the needs of its community.

Are there employment opportunities available with the Angliss expansion?

We are continuing to recruit for nursing roles at the Angliss ICU. Whether you are looking to take the next step in your career or are looking to work closer to home, we encourage people who are interested in working in an exciting environment to apply. Click here for further details.

Eastern Health is grateful for the efforts of its project partners in the Department of Health and Human Services, consultants and architect Silver Thomas Hanley and builders Kane Constructions for their work and support of this project.

Short stay and paediatric facilities on Angliss expansion agenda

Expansion works are continuing at Angliss Hospital.

The construction team have been busy with stage two of the project, which includes an expansion of short stay and paediatric facilities.

Refurbishment works on part of the courtyard have also been completed.

Eastern Health Executive Director of Information, Technology and Capital Projects Zoltan Kokai thanked staff, patients and the community for their patience while works were completed.

“We are grateful to everyone for their support in helping us deliver a better hospital.”

The project is due for completion in mid-2018.
