About the redevelopment...

Work on the $8.8 million expansion of Healesville Hospital and Yarra Valley Health is progressing well. Click here to view the plans. Click here for more information.

When completed in early 2017, the hospital and community health centre will be larger (to support new services) with improved facilities and equipment.

What's included in the redevelopment?

  • A new, enlarged operating theatre complex with access to modern technology and separate theatre and ward entrances
  • A new renal dialysis unit, commencing with six chairs
  • A redeveloped community health centre, with an increase in the number of consulting rooms and capacity to extend the Primary Care GP Service staffing and hours
  • A refurbished and modernised interior, as well as improved parking and open spaces
  • Space for a birthing room and ensuite when and if demand for birthing services across the Yarra Ranges increases and Eastern Health is able to provide a safe and sustainable birthing service.

Please note: Most Healesville Hospital services have been temporarily relocated during the redevelopment. For more information, please call 1300 342 255.

  • Increasing inpatient general medicine services
  • Continuing acute, inpatient care, particularly for older patients
  • Continuing to provide endoscopy and low-complexity surgery
  • Introducing a renal dialysis service
  • Expanding and improving facilities for community health services
  • Expanding and improving access to specialist (outpatient) clinics
  • Increasing palliative care and mental health services
  • Improving the rooms for inpatients so they are more private by reducing the number of shared rooms and providing ensuite access in all rooms.
