Health Minister Greg Hunt officially opens Frankston Private Hospital

Recognising the growing need for dedicated healthcare services in Melbourne’s southern and peninsula communities, Healthscope has developed Frankston Private Hospital to better enable patient access to local private care.

Federal Health Minister, the Hon Greg Hunt MP together with Healthscope Chairman Paula Dwyer, officially opened the state-of-the-art facility today.

Paula Dwyer, Healthscope Chairman explained that Frankston Private Hospital demonstrates Healthscope’s commitment to invest in the provision of private healthcare to the community.

“Healthscope has committed $1.2 billion to an investment pipeline that will further grow our capacity to deliver dedicated healthcare to Australians,” explains Ms Dwyer.

The facility, acquired by leading Australian healthcare provider Healthscope in 2014, was previously two separate, day procedure focussed, healthcare facilities.

“Our vision for Frankston Private Hospital was to create a state-of-the-art, dedicated private acute healthcare facility that can grow with the increasing demand placed on local healthcare services,” explained Ms Dwyer.

Frankston Private Hospital comprises 101 overnight and day patient-beds as well as five operating theatres and a state-of-the-art day infusion and oncology centre.

“Situated in one of the highest population growth areas in Victoria, Frankston Private Hospital together with our recently opened $140 million Holmesglen Private Hospital in Moorabbin, will allow our network to provide dedicated quality healthcare across Melbourne’s bayside down to the southern peninsula and across to the Greater Dandenong, Casey and Monash,” explains Ms Dwyer.

Frankston Private Hospital provides a range of specialist services including orthopaedics, urology, general surgery and endoscopy, gynaecology, ophthalmology, minor plastics, oral maxillofacial and dental surgery along with oncology, medical and pain management.

“Servicing a growing population, Frankston Private Hospital has the capacity to grow to meet demand, ensuring that residents of Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula have dedicated, quality healthcare, close to home, for many years to come,” said Ms Dwyer.

Health Minister Greg Hunt said the new hospital would provide quality care to patients in the South East region.

“The hospital is well-placed to provide an exceptional health service to meet the healthcare needs of local residents,” Minister Hunt said.

“Frankston Private will form part of the Frankston Health and Education Precinct, which incorporates Frankston Public Hospital and Monash University and provides vital training to our future doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals.”

“The Government is committed to providing a mixed model of private and public health services to all Australians, bringing them choice and encouraging innovation in health care services.”

Federal Member for Dunkley Chris Crewther said the development of Frankston Private Hospital represented a significant investment in the future health and wellbeing of local residents.

“Having these services available locally is important as it means patients can choose to have their treatment here instead of travelling to Melbourne.”
