The City of Melton is one of Victoria’s fastest-growing communities. A growing community needs a hospital.
The City of Melton’s nearest major hospitals are the Western Hospital in Footscray – more than 30km away – and Sunshine, where, according to Government data, patients in emergency wait up to two hours longer to see a doctor.
Bacchus Marsh Hospital is a small regional hospital with fewer than 50 beds. It can manage only a fraction of our current population, let alone our future population of more than 400,000.
Melton Hospital will provide better health care for residents of the City of Melton and surrounding communities, while reducing the pressure on hospitals in Sunshine, Footscray and Bacchus Marsh.
