Our work on this project is supporting the largest health infrastructure investment in the state of Victoria, Australia

The New Footscray Hospital Project will provide access to quality care and support future operation, technology, and service changes to western Melbourne. The project will deliver more accessible healthcare to the community with more beds.

Replacing the original hospital built in the 1950s, the new hospital will include more than 500 inpatient beds, acute facilities, specialist facilities, car parking, as well as community facilities such as childcare, gymnasium, pharmacy, allied health, café, retail spaces, and office spaces. Stantec is providing mechanical, electrical, communications, hydraulics, fire protection, fire engineering, acoustics, specialty lighting, and vertical transportation advisory services. The new Footscray Hospital has been designed to enable the future electrification of the hospital to support Victoria’s transition to a net zero carbon economy by 2050. State of the art medical equipment incorporated with the latest technology will be integrated with the iconic buildings. Our goal is to help elevate the patient experience through our services.

Upon completion, the new Footscray Hospital will treat almost 15,000 more patients, annually. In addition, it will enable around 20,000 additional people to be seen by the emergency department each year to support the thriving western suburbs. The project is an opportunity for our team to deliver on our promise to care for our communities.
