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.

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.
