MASSIVE UPGRADE OF FRANKSTON HOSPITAL UNDERWAY
 
"Great news for Western Port and Langwarrin communities"

The massive expansion of the Frankston Hospital is now underway. Once completed it will make an enormous difference to Victoria’s health network and particularly to health service available to residents of the Hastings Electorate; including the communities of Langwarrin, Baxter, Somerville, Pearcedale, Tyabb, Hastings, Bittern, Crib Point, Somers and Balnarring.

The Frankston Hospital emergency department is one of the busiest in the State, managing close to 59,000 attendances per year including more than 20,000 ambulance presentations annually.

Member for Hastings, Neale Burgess said: "This redevelopment will more than double the size of the existing emergency department at the Frankston Hospital and will include three new hospital wards which will add a further 92 beds"
 
Mr Burgess added: "This massive upgrade is great news for residents of the Western Port and Langwarrin areas."
 
This upgrade will make an enormous difference in terms of helping patients move efficiently through the emergency department and into a ward.

Once built, the emergency department would ensure that locals get the clinical support and health services they need, now and in the future

The Victorian Coalition Government, along with the Department of Health, and Peninsula Health are working together with the community to address capacity issues at Frankston hospital and ensure locals get the health services they need.

The $81 million worth of funding will expand the intensive care unit, and construct a new four-level building on site (see artist's impression), which includes:

· two new 32 bed wards to increase surgical and medical multi-day inpatient bed capacity on site;

· a new and expanded emergency department at Frankston Hospital;

· 24 additional short stay beds;

· 2 additional intensive care unit beds

· 2 additional special care nursery cots; and

· a refurbished emergency department at Frankston Hospital to provide for expanded ambulatory services.

The Frankston Hospital Redevelopment project is expected to be completed in December 2014.
