A minimum of 45 minutes to travel to Frankston Hospital for acute and emergency care puts people’s lives at risk. Our community often has to travel all the way to Melbourne for specialist care.
A redeveloped hospital would mean more specialist services and greater capacity for acute and emergency care closer to home. Healthcare is an essential service and up to date infrastructure is crucial for our community well-being. Upgrades would include:
A redeveloped Rosebud Hospital could extend Frankston’s medical and education precinct to Rosebud, providing local opportunities for medical research, training, employment and specialist services to meet the needs of the Peninsula community.
Upgrades to Rosebud Hospital would benefit the local community by providing:
A redeveloped hospital would allow us to attract the best healthcare professionals to the Peninsula. It would also provide the opportunity to bring a range of services together including aged care, education and research. Existing services such as Monash University and Chisholm TAFE could be better connected to Rosebud Hospital.
Medical precincts are a priority for the Victorian Government and included within the $2 billion Breakthrough Victoria Fund. This is aimed at bridging the gap between discovery and commercialisation and mobilising innovation in key areas such as health and life sciences, supporting diversification of the local economy.
Funding for medical precincts has already been allocated to Berwick, Frankston, Footscray and Shepparton.
