Three Consortia Shortlisted for $562m Frankston Hospital Redevelopment
The Health and Human Services Building Authority has shortlisted three consortia to deliver the $562m Frankston Hospital redevelopment.
The hospital will be delivered as a public-private partnership between the State Government and Peninsula Health, and was originally promised prior to the last state election.
The redevelopment will create 120 extra beds and two new operating theatres in a multi-level acute clinical services tower.
The project was designed to provide first-class care for residents of Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula and boost local jobs. Construction is set to create up to 1,700 jobs during its peak.
The three shortlisted consortia are:
Plenary Health – Multiplex, Plenary Group and Spotless
Exemplar Health – Lendlease, Capella Capital, Honeywell and Compass
Pulse Health Partnership – Watpac, John Laing and Serco Australia
Plenary Health is currently delivering the new $1.5 billion Footscray Hospital, Victoria’s largest healthcare infrastructure project to date.
Exemplar Health was contracted by the Victorian Government and Bendigo Health to construct the Bendigo Hospital, which opened in 2017.
The Pulse Health Partnership is a global consortium which has previously delivered a number of PPP projects across Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
The Frankston Hospital redevelopment will chiefly serve the ageing population of Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula, whilst also delivering expanded womens and childrens facilities to meet demand created by families moving into the Frankston area.
The new hospital will also have a new oncology ward and dedicated space for mental health services.
The shortlisted candidates will compete in a comprehensive tender process, with a successful bidder to be announced early next year.
Construction of the main tower is expected to be complete in late 2024, with a view to open the hospital in early 2025.
