The Victorian Health and Human Services Building Authority (VHHSBA) approached Council in early 2019 to identify a potential location for a new Cranbourne Community Hospital as part of the State Government’s commitment to build ten new community hospitals close to major growth areas in Victoria.
The proposed site currently being considered for the hospital has been identified within the Casey Complex at 65 Berwick-Cranbourne Road, Cranbourne East (refer to the plan below).
This site currently accommodates the Balla Balla Community Centre and overflow parking for the Casey Stadium, and is near other facilities including the Administration Building and Casey RACE. Council is working in collaboration with tenants, including Balla Balla Community Centre, on its proposed relocation to alternative accommodation, should the land sale proceed.
The proposed Community Hospital will be managed by Monash Health and services will include early intervention, primary and community care, as well as a focus on paediatric care, chronic disease management programs, and day hospital services. These proposed services will provide the surrounding community access to health services closer to home, without travelling to major hospitals for treatment.
If the proposed land sale was to go ahead, the proceeds from the sale of land for the development of the Hospital would enable Council to provide community facilities for the current and future population of Cranbourne.
This is the first stage of the process to enable the community to provide feedback on how they feel about the proposed land sale.
The engagement process with the community ran between Thursday 11 February - Thursday 11 March.
