Melbourne's west has an expected population growth of 40 percent over the next 40 years.

To deliver the best possible healthcare to this growing community, the Victorian Government recognises the need for state-of-the-art facilities.

In the 2017-2018 budget, $50 million was provided for infrastructure improvements to Footscray Hospital, together with funding to progress planning for a new hospital.
