The $562 million redevelopment and expansion of Frankston Hospital will deliver world-class healthcare facilities for the local community.

The redevelopment will deliver a multi-level services tower including two new operating theatres, a new main entrance, capacity for 120 more beds and dedicated spaces for mental health and oncology services.

With more families making Frankston home, the redevelopment will also deliver expanded women and children's services.

The redevelopment is being delivered as a public private partnership. Frankston Hospital will continue to be a public hospital, with all clinical health services operated and provided by Peninsula Health.

The Frankston Hospital redevelopment is expected to create up to 1,700 jobs at the peak of construction and in new opportunities for the healthcare sector.

What we've heard

In our recent community survey, we heard from more than 300 people on the healthcare services and community benefits that are important to them.

We're listening and are starting to hear the things that matter to the local community. Things like quality of services, car parking, inclusive spaces for families and making it easier to find your way around the hospital.

You can read a summary of the results on our website or access it in the Document Library below.

Now, we want to hear from you on some of the key spaces in the redeveloped hospital. Have your say below and help us to shape a Frankston Hospital that is welcoming and inclusive.
